During the course of this week discussions will be held in Geneva at the 5+UN informal meeting about the future of Cyprus and the Turkish Cypriot side has already made it clear they want a Two State solution..
Not only does the TRNC call for a 2 State solution but the Two-State Solution Platform for Cyprus which represents 65 non-government and civil society organisations globally who have collectively undersigned the statement as listed in Addendum A of the attached. Up until now, we have given our full support to the two Cypriot leaders involved in negotiating a mutually acceptable compromise settlement in Cyprus. Regrettably, it is only too clear that the “Cypriot-led process” under UN auspices with the aim of constructing a federation-based solution, has not reaped the results for which many Turkish and Greek Cypriots had hoped.
