Cooperation between both sides still possible: Özersay

Turkish Cypriot negotiator Kudret Özersay has said that cooperation between the two sides is still possible, adding that the process will become clearer in the coming months, BRTK reports.

Özersay evaluated the Cyprus negotiations process on BRT this morning. He said that consensus should be reached, particularly in the fields of tourism, religious services, mutual crossings and cooperation however, although he put forward proposals to the Greek Cypriot side, no concrete cooperation has been reached on any of these issues.

Noting peoples’ diminishing interest in the Cyprus issue, Özersay said this interest would not return until concrete results are reached on the issue. Stating that he would not carry out this duty as a negotiator just for the sake of doing the job, he said he might resign once he believes it would not be possible to reach a solution. He added however, that he was still hopeful for the process.

Stating that it was too early to say whether or not the process will be successful, Özersay said that the situation will become clearer in the coming months. He also added that as in the past, all new developments will continue to be shared with the press.
