TMT criticises Akinci for meeting UniteCyprusNow platform on Communal Day

The vice-president of the Turkish Fighters Association (TMT) sent a written message to President Mustafa Akinci which said that “unfortunately, President Akinci received and held a frank meeting with the Unite Cyprus Now Platform funded by the Greek Cypriot Stelios Foundation while the 1st of August Communal Day was being celebrated in the TRNC”.

In written response, President Akinci’s spokesman Baris Burcu said that the framework of the celebrations is decided by the National Days Celebration Committee which operates under the TRNC’s foreign ministry. He said that in accordance with the decisions of the Committee, the TRNC foreign ministry’s department of protocol sends written invitations to those who should attend the ceremonies according to state protocol. “The president attends or does not attend the ceremonies within this framework”, Burcu said and added: “It is also very natural that the president himself decides with whom to meet or not”.
