A TRNC Assmbly delegation has been in Strasbourg holding contacts with members of the EU Parliament.

The delegation included CTP representative Armagan Candan, National Unity Party (UBP) representative Hamza Ersan Saner, MP for the Democrat Party/National Forces (DP/UG) Hasan Tacoy and MP for the Social Democratic Party (TDP) Zeki Celer.

During its contacts at the European Parliament, the delegation discussed the report on Turkey’s EU accession, which will be voted on at the European Parliament, the Cyprus problem and the issue of the Turkish language becoming an official EU language.

Candan said that they held meetings with MPs from different political groups at the European Parliament and added that they conveyed the demands of the Turkish Cypriots from the EU and the European Parliament.

Reminding that the final discussions on Turkey’s report were being held, Candan said paragraphs in the report, relating to Cyprus, were more comprehensive than before.

Saner on his part criticised the European Parliament for linking the Cyprus negotiations with the report on Turkey. He also pointed out that no progress had been made on the Free Trade Regulation had been promised by the EU to the Turkish Cypriots before the Annan Plan referendum.

Tacoy said it was important to enable Turkish Cypriot representation at the European Parliament and expressed his views on the issue of the Turkish language becoming an EU language.
