26 September 2015

Turkish Cypriot negotiator Ozdil Nami has been in Brussel and met separately with Johannes Hahn, the Commissioner for European Neighbourhood Policy and Enlargement Negotiations, and Corina Cretu, Commissioner for Regional Policy.

During their meetings they discussed the latest progress in the Cyprus negotiations and also what preparations were required to form the Turkish Cypriot founding state, in the event of a comprehensive solution.

It will be necessary to lay the foundations to meet the requirements of EU membership without difficulties arising. The EU Commission will need to take steps to contribute in a more active way to the process.
