Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu has stressed that the Greek Cypriot side would move towards a solution even if the Cyprus negotiations continued for another ten years with the same parameters.

Turkish Foreign Minister Çavuşoğlu shared the foreign policy vision with representatives of media organisations during a meeting held at the Ankara Palas State Guest House where he also touched upon the Cyprus issue.

Referring to the elections to be held in the TRNC on Sunday, he said “we will sit down and discuss with the TRNC authorities on how to move forward once the elections are completed.”

There was no problem with the parameters however the Greek Cypriot side does not want a solution. We understood one thing that even if we keep negotiating for another 10 years on the basis of these parameters the Greek Cypriot side will not come close to a solution”, Çavuşoğlu added.

Reminding that the Cyprus negotiations were unsuccessful, he said that the constructive stance of the Turkish side was seen and appreciated by everyone.

The Greek Cypriot side has an internationally recognised state which is a member of the European Union and although the gap has closed a bit, its economy is still stronger. Therefore, why should they share governance and power? Even, they say “our hospitals are better than yours, why should we share our hospitals?” I don’t think this mentality will change”, Çavuşoğlu said.
