Taner Dervis, former general director of the EVKAF religious foundation, has handed over a letter regarding the fenced off city of Varosha to the US Assistant Secretary of State, Eric Rubin who visited Cyprus on Tuesday, Turkish Cypriot daily ‘Kibris’ reports.

In statements to ‘Kibris’, Dervis said that he had “enlightened” Rubin with regard to the “Turkish Cypriot people’s property rights in the closed city of Varosha”.

He noted that he told Rubin what he had written in letters to other foreign officials and reiterated the claim that the entire city of Varosha belongs to the EVKAF according to the laws of Cyprus.
