Turkish Cyprus' 'new understanding' involves independent equality

(MENAFN) The Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC) is moving forward on the basis of independent equality and equal global status, according to the nation's leader on Tuesday.

"Our new understanding and politics include sovereign equality and equal international status.
We tell the world that an agreement on Cyprus would be reached with the cooperation of all states," Ersin Tatar stated at Türkiye’s 13th Ambassadors Conference in Ankara, the capital.

Claiming that Turkish Cyprus accepted a new political understanding when he took post two years ago, Tatar claimed: "We can now reach somewhere in Cyprus via sovereign equality. It will not be possible for us to live with an agreement on the basis of a federation."

Tatar went on by vowing to work in "full harmony" with Türkiye.

For his part, Türkiye's Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu announced that there were "tough negotiations (over the island) in the past."

"We could not reach a conclusion due to the Greek Cypriot side's refusal to find any solution and because they do not want to share anything with the Turkish Cypriot people," Cavusoglu added
Confirming that Ankara will carry on protecting "the acquired right of usurped Turkish Cypriots," he called for "this right to be restored."
