TRNC President Mustafa Akıncı said “The approach that Turkish Cypriots will vote ‘NO’ in a referendum to be conducted’ is a speculative approach, some people publish fictitious news, do not heed them. They know what they vote ‘YES’ or ‘NO’”.
Akıncı emphasized that both TRNC and Turkey want a solution and their cooperation will continue and added that they expect the support of Greece to the process like Turkey.
Pointing out that there are elections on 20th September in Greece and on 1st November in Turkey, Akıncı said that he wished Greece, as the guarantor country to make the same contribution to the process as Turkey.
In a joint press statement, TRNC President Mustafa Akıncı wished success to Turkish Foreign Affairs Minister Feridun Sinirlioğlu and expressed his pleasure that he paid his first official foreign visit to the TRNC.
