Turkish Cypriot Foreign Minister Ozdil Nami has expressed his optimism regarding the Cyprus problem and said that it can be solved with one last effort, ‘Kibris Postasi’ reported.

Remarking that the world had grown tired of the Cyprus problem, Nami said that the Turkish Cypriot side is trying to change this. He also pointed the importance of the words used by UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon who in reference to the negotiations said, “one final push” and “time framed effort.”

Speaking at a briefing meeting organised by the Foreign Ministry for the 93 consulate officers who had started working at the ministry, Nami continued:

“Regardless of the result of negotiations Turkish Cypriots can’t continue to live isolated from rest of the world. Turkish Cypriots continue to walk their path in coordination with Turkey.”

When asked by a member of the audience if he believed in the possibility of a solution, despite the insincerity of the Greek Cypriots, Nami responded with, “Greek Cypriots think similarly to us, they also have reservations because of history”.

Reminding everyone that the US had dropped atomic bombs to Japan twice, and the of bloody events of world wars, Nami said that the nations who managed to make peace can offer a better life for their people. “I believe Turkish Cypriots have the ability to prevent the re-occurrence of past sufferings and pains,” he added.

Asked about the likely outcome of a referendum on the solution, the foreign minister said “Both communities want a solution. According to our analysis the “yes” vote still stands strong in the north and I think there is a similar tendency in the south this time”.
