Akıncı makes a statement regarding the report to be submitted by Guterres

President Mustafa Akıncı stated that the Greek Cypriot side has confirmed themselves that although there is a clear stance by the Turkish Cypriot side, the Greek Cypriot side is not ready for a solution on the basis of political equality within the framework of the UN parameters.

President Akıncı made a statement regarding the report to be submitted by the UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres to the UN Security Council. Akıncı stressed that both sides’ attitude for a solution within the UN parameters and the terms of reference which has been tried to be prepared with this aim should be included in a clear and objective way in the report of the UN Secretary-General Guterres.

Furthermore, expressing that the efforts for a solution to be reached in Cyprus should not start from the beginning and the process for a solution should be result oriented based on a calendar, Akıncı added that the decisive and sincere attitude of the Turkish Cypriot side to reach peace in Cyprus should not be disregarded any more. It should be known that the status quo continuing in Cyprus has harmed the Turkish Cypriot people in a short time but it will also not produce good results for the Greek Cypriots in a longer term.
