Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu has said that Turkey is making efforts to lift the isolation of the TRNC by opening more of its representation offices abroad and for its passport to become valid in more countries.

According to Anadolu news agency, when presenting his ministry’s 2018 budget to a parliamentary committee, Cavusoglu said that the Turkish side is holding consultations as to what will happen regarding the Cyprus problem and that Turkey, as guarantor power, will do its bit for reaching a solution through dialogue and diplomacy.

Cavusoglu reiterated the accusation that at the Cyprus Conference at Crans-Montana, it was seen that the Greek Cypriot side did not want a solution. The UN and EU member countries saw the efforts exerted by the Turkish side for the solution, which “are sincerely mentioned at every platform”, He said: “While we want a solution in Cyprus, we exert efforts for lifting the TRNC’s isolation, for opening more of its representation offices and for its passports to become valid in more countries”.
