Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said that Turkey will always be on the side of the Turkish Cypriot people and their newly elected President Dervis Eroglu.
Speaking at a joint press conference with Eroglu in TRNC's capital of Lefkosa Davutoglu said "We will continue to encourage negotiations in Cyprus and provide all support to the negotiations process."
The international community owes the Turkish Cypriots a message, Davutoglu said.
There is no justification for the continuation of isolations against the Turkish Cypriot people, one that voted in favor of a solution in a referendum held in 2004, DAvutoglu said.
The end of isolations is an ethical obligation. Those that want to see the Turkish Cypriot President at the negotiations table must end punishing the Turkish Cypriots, Davutoglu underlined.
Davutoglu called on the whole world and Greek Cypriot side to make efforts to find a solution in Cyprus.
Mr. President, you have highlighted this strong will (for a solution). Turkey will always be on the side of this strong will. I congratulate you once more, Davutoglu said.
Ahmet Davutoglu left the TRNC after the joint press conference.
Davutoglu was in the TRNC to attend the oath-taking ceremony of the newly elected Turkish Cypriot President Dervis Eroglu.
