Turkish President Abdullah Gul said Sunday the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC) has proved itself with the latest general elections.

The TRNC has a working democracy and pluralistic political parties. The TRNC has proved that it has a well functioning democracy, Gul said.

As the Republic of Turkey, we are always on the side and behind the TRNC. The welfare and security of our brothers and sisters there is a priority for us. However, you are the ones conducting the negotiations. We are extending support to you, Gul also said.
