For it seems almost an eternity, there has been talk of a mobile network operation allowing TRNC and South Cyprus cell phone users to communicate with each other and today we noted the following statement by Fikri Toros on social media in reply to a posting to him from Fatos Miralay.

“President Nikos Anastasiades and Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci agreed on an arrangement that will eventually allow the interoperability of mobile phones throughout the island”, such a good news.
TRNC Member of Parliament…..
“I am very pleased to announce that the two Leaders have given consent to the implementation of the interoperability of mobile phones throughout the Island.
Together with the permanent interconnection of the electricity grids, I firmly believe they will have a huge positive impact on the future of the peace process.
This would not have been possible without the entrusted cooperation I shared with Mr Phidias Pilides.
I would like to extend my hearted gratitude to Messrs Akıncı and Anastasiades, to Mr Pilides, and to all my colleagues for their profound commitment and relentless support throughout this process.”
