There is no more time to waste to find a solution to the Cyprus problem, President Mustafa Akinci has said.
Addressing a meeting organised by the Turkish Bar Association within the framework of commemorating Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, Akinci said that a new result-oriented method is needed which will be open to “comprehensive approaches”. There should be a predetermined time frame and the cessation of endless “unproductive negotiations”.
Akinci also noted that he hoped that the Greek Cypriot leadership and the Greek Cypriot community will be able to develop an approach, which would lead to a change in mentality after the presidential elections. If this happens, a new method could be used for finding a lasting solution in Cyprus on the basis of equality, freedom and security.
