Former President of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC) Mehmet Ali Talat said Friday he would continue to make efforts for a solution in Cyprus.
Speaking at a ceremony in which Dervis Eroglu took over the seat of TRNC President in Lefkosa on Friday, Talat said that he would add voice to the voice of the Turkish Cypriot people.
I will pursue the solution process in Cyprus, Talat noted.
Though the TRNC people and government are not recognized, they are received with respect in the world. We have glorified the TRNC, Talat said.
I served as the President of the TRNC with great honor in the past five years. I have always been pleased by appearing in various global platforms as the leader of the Turkish Cypriots, Talat said.
The fact that the presidential elections on April 18 took place in a peaceful atmosphere is actually the success of the Turkish Cypriots. I thank the whole Turkish Cypriot people and wish the new President Mr. Dervis Eroglu success during his tenure, Talat also said.
