Turkish Cyprus President renews commitment to talks in UN letter

Newly elected President Dervis Eroglu of Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC) reiterated his commitment to resume peace talks in a letter he sent to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon on April 23rd.

Eroglu emphasized the injustice of isolations on Turkish Cypriots, and said that beginning a new round in peace talks should not be an excuse to postpone lifting the isolations.

Eroglu expressed belief that setting a time limitation for comprehensive peace talks would encourage an early solution and thus it was compulsory.

He said that UN parameters such as bizonality, political equality of peoples and equal status of two founder states should continue to be milestones of solution efforts in Cyprus.

Eroglu noted that 1960 Guarantees System and the principle of equal sovereignty of two peoples were vital for Turkish Cypriots.

In his letter, Eroglu also expressed his wish to visit Ban soon, and discuss the perspective to pursue peace talks to find a solution for Cyprus question.

Eroglu said that a solution was possible and reachable in the island, and it was necessary to exert more efforts to achieve this.
