President of the TRNC Dervis Eroglu has congratulated Nicos Anastasiades, the new leader of the Greek Cypriot administration, on his run-off election victory.

According to a statement released by the TRNC Presidency, Eroglu had a telephone conversation with Anastasiades today in which he said, “I hope that your election as leader of the Greek Cypriots will help bring on a new and productive process in the Cyprus issue, ongoing for decades.”

Eroglu added that an early dialogue between the sides would make a positive impression internationally and this issue will reflect the leaders’ historical responsibility towards the generations to come.

For his part, Anastasiades stated on Sunday that the priority of Greek Cyprus is to overcome the economic crisis before starting negotiation talks with the Turkish side. He also conveyed a message to Turkish Cypriots, saying it was up to Turkey to help Turkish Cypriots to restore unification on the island.
