President Mustafa Akıncı said “We are going to Berlin to determine the stage reached and the road map together”. Akıncı departed from the TRNC yesterday (24 November 2019) for the triple meeting to be held today in Berlin. Before his departure, Akıncı made a statement to the press at Ercan Airport.
Expressing that they are not going to Berlin just for the sake of negotiation, Akıncı said that the period of negotiating just for the sake of negotiations has ended and added that a result-oriented and well-planned process is necessary. Akıncı said: “We hope there will be a favorable response to our constructive attitude towards a solution in Cyprus. I hope a positive result will be reached at the meeting for the whole of Cyprus”.
