Following Monday’s meeting between the two community leaders, President Akinci said that they had discussed issues that had been agreed upon, what remained and where differences continued.

He said that at every meeting, they were able to make further progress and so they were optimistic about developments.

Akinci said that although they have yet to discuss the two main chapters, they had discussed and made progress on four chapters and therefore they were optimistic about the remaining chapters.

He said that there would be three further meetings on the 24th, 26th, and 31st October and if needed, a few meetings could be held at the start of November.

The issue of territory could be taken up abroad, in a country that is neutral, but work towards this end was continuing, he noted.

The two leaders will continue with the intensified negotiations with the aim of achieving a settlement by the year’s end.

Although some differences remain, we don’t want the future generation to live with the problems we had, we want them to have a different, peaceful future”, he said.
