President Dervis Eroglu said that he does not know whether the Cyprus talks will resume or not, but the UN Secretary General’s Special Adviser will submit his report on Cyprus to the UN Security Council on 26th January.
He added that he will be speaking with Eide on the phone, the day before, and Eide will be informed on the views of the Turkish Cypriots.
Currently on the presidential campaign trail, Eroglu who was addressing villages in Güzelyurt, said that the Cyprus talks had dragged on. He declared that the Greek Cypriot side does not represent their rights, accusing the UN and the EU of being silent on this “injustice”. He added, however, that they have patience and they are right and they will definitely defend the rights of the Turkish Cypriots at the negotiating table.
Eroglu also said that he had met with former President Christofias 77 times, but only 7 times with President Anastasiades. He said that Anastasiades has abandoned the negotiating table, but he is still there, waiting.
Eroglu added that those who abandoned the negotiating table should return without preconditions – if there is any intention of reaching an agreement.
