Speaker of the TRNC parliament, Sibel Siber was in Ankara yesterday to meet with Turkey’s Prime Minister Erdogan.
She also met with her Turkish counterpart Cemil Çiçek and Deputy Prime Minister Bashir Atalay. The TRNC’s Ambassador Mustafa Lakadamyal was also present.
Parliamentary Speaker Cicek took the opportunity to say that, although an optimistic wind blew due to the current Greek Cypriot President Anastasiades’ comments in the past, the administration, elected in February 2013, was still using the financial crisis as a pretext for dragging its feet in making efforts to resolve the Cyprus issue.
Mrs. Sibel also spent an hour with Turkish President Gul.
