    Oktay: “A two-state solution is a path that requires patience. We will walk this path together again shoulder to shoulder.”

    Fuat Oktay, vice president of the Republic of Turkey, stressed that they will continue to resolutely explain to the international community the proposals for ‘registration of the sovereign equality and equal international status of the Turkish Cypriot people’, which they see as the key to the solution; “A two-state solution is a path that requires patience. We’re going to walk this road together, shoulder to shoulder. In addition, we will continue to work towards the Eastern Mediterranean being a sea of peace, stability and cooperation for all peoples of the region, especially the Turks of the Eastern Mediterranean.”

    Noting that the Greek side has taken a unilateral stance on energy sources, Oktay announced that it will start unilateral hydrocarbon works in the region again.

    We’re not afraid of anyone… Those who seek adventure in the Eastern Mediterranean get their answer.” “REAL POLITICS TIME… IT’S COMING, IT’S PASSING” Noting that the time for realistic policy on Cyprus has already come and gone for the international community, oktay said that the two-state solution is not a negotiating position.

    What wound have the proposals brought to the negotiating table for half a century been a salve? Do they expect the Turkish side to bow to pressure over time with these diversionary tactics? “He said, “no matter where it comes from, the Turkish side will not bow to any pressure.

    In his speech at the ceremony held on Dr. Fazil Small Boulevard on the anniversary of its founding, he expressed his belief that if they move forward with unity and determination, they will overcome the problems.


    Oktay also underlined that the best answer to those living in the imagination is the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, which stands on its feet, develops, develops and strengthens.

    On the 38th anniversary of the founding of the TRNC, Oktay expressed his great pleasure to share the holiday enthusiasm on the occasion of the anniversary, noting that turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan and the Turkish nation brought their most heartfelt greetings and love, and celebrated the Republic Day of the Turkish Cypriot people on November 15th. “38 YEARS AGO, PERSECUTION AND TORTURE ENDED” Noting that November 15th was a glorious page added to the history of the struggle of the Turkish Cypriot people, and that the uncertainty, persecution and torture that began in Cyprus 38 years ago today from 1878 has ended, Oktay said that the people of the TRNC have been fearlessly resisting greek atrocities for decades, dying, giving blood but not giving up their freedom.

    Oktay continued: “The Turkish Cypriot people have not given up their sovereignty of the land they have acquired since 1571. The saga of the sovereignty and resurrection of the Turkish Cypriots was stuck like a dagger in the Greek Cypriots’ Enosis dream, and the Turkish Cypriots gave a lesson in fairness to the world that watched it be slaughtered.

    This struggle, crowned by the 1974 Peace Campaign, was won with solidarity and the brotherhood of Mehmetçik and our mujahideen.

    The TRNC was founded 38 years ago with the joint agreement of all parties in parliament and the support of the Turkish Cypriot people and the love of freedom.

    The joy of independence, which everyone celebrates with its young and old, has spread from Nicosia to Ankara and all sister geographies.

    Today, in the spirit of 1974 and 1983, we will take care of your future, and we will be celebrating your 38th. We’re proud of the year.

    This waving flag is your most precious value to the peace, stability that prevails on your own soil and the strengthened democracy in the TRNC.

    We share this consistency. We firmly believe that the sovereignty of the Turkish Cypriot State, which is the guarantee of the indispensable rights of the Turkish Cypriots on the island, will be permanent” Oktay emphasized that the determination and will of the Turkish Cypriots, who have endured many hardships in the struggle for rights and equality and who have faced many difficulties, are a source of pride for Motherland Turkey, of which it is an integral part.

    Dr. Fazil Kucuk, who initiated the struggle for the existence of Turkish Cypriots, Founding President Rauf Denktas, Oktay wished mercy to those who did not survive and healthy lives to those who survived, and stressed that they will not forget cengiz Topelleri, Münr Salih Dilavers and Fehmi Ercans who died for this cause.

    Noting the importance of moving towards a solution on the island and establishing cooperation between the two states on the island in order to transform sovereignty over embargoes and into prosperity, Oktay noted that Turkey and the TRNC have always been united in a solution route based on common understanding and reason.

    Oktay stated that although there are those on the other side who disrupt all the positive mood by saying “never”, fuel radicalization and feed on insolvency, they continue to show and will continue to show in good faith, and their aim is to transform the region into a field of cooperation for all and to make this cooperation produce continuous stability and prosperity.

    Oktay continued his speech: “We repeat once again; we want a fair, lasting and sustainable solution on the island. Thus, we aim to settle peace and stability on the island and in the region.

    The acquis rights of the Turkish Cypriot people, in other words, their sovereign equality and equal international status, must be registered and guaranteed.

    Otherwise, the conditions that will pave the way for the solution will never be possible.

    The proposal put forward by President Tatar in Geneva is built on this basis”. Noting that the time for realistic policy on Cyprus has already come and gone for the international community, oktay said that the two-state solution is not a negotiating position.
