President Eroglu held a meeting yesterday at his office in order to brief the leaders or representatives of the Turkish Cypriot political parties represented in the Parliament on the Cyprus problem.

In statements made after the two-hour meeting, Prime Minister Kucuk, and chairman of the National Unity Party (UBP), said that the Cyprus talks have been postponed for almost a year because of the presidential elections in South Cyprus and added that preparations for the resumption of the negotiations continue. He added that on 25th April, Alexander Downer, UN Secretary-General’s special adviser on Cyprus, will visit the island for the second time in two months. He said that Downer will meet with the leaders and may bring some fresh ideas with him.

Kucuk said that President Anastasiades is looking for a way out of the economic crisis and is also trying to gain time and delay the start of the negotiations. He argued that President Anastasiades had rejected Eroglu’s proposal for meeting at a dinner in April and that this social meeting was postponed until May. Kucuk said that his party believes that the negotiations should start immediately and that Eroglu will undertake the necessary initiatives with Downer.
