Turkey wishes to enhance TRNC status at Islamic Conference

The status of the TRNC will be on the agenda, once again, at the Organisation of the Islamic Conference (OIC) which will take place on April 13-14 in Istanbul.

According to Turkish daily Cumhuriyet, when Turkey hosted the OIC meeting in 2006, the TRNC was accepted as a Turkish Cypriot state at the summit, but this was rescinded following an initiative made by Egypt.

The paper notes that Turkey will try to reinstate the TRNC at the forthcoming summit. The TRNC currently participates with observer status only.
