Turkish Vice President Fuat Oktay stated that Turkey’s sine qua non in the Cyprus solution is the political equality of both sides.
Oktay received young people from the TRNC at the Presidential Complex.
In his speech at the meeting, Oktay emphasized that it is not possible to achieve peace according to the principle of minority and he added: “One must have a voice in his own future. This is a human right. There are hydrocarbon resources. You see where the interest in the region comes from. This is a reality spoken today but known decades ago. Now more is revealed. Turkey displays the same attitude here as well. If there are two peoples on the island, there should be fair sharing. This prosperity belongs to the inhabitants of the Island and should be equally distributed to both sides”.
