President Mustafa Akıncı criticized the attacks which were carried out by the members of ELAM and the Greek Cypriots students against Turkish Cypriots near the border gates in Lefkoşa yesterday and emphasized that this behaviour does not contribute to the negotiating process in any way. On the other hand, Akıncı wants the Greek Cypriot Administration to arrest the criminals immediately and bring them to trial.

Stating that it is not possible to understand the participation of Greek students in such an incident, Akıncı said that the Greek Cypriot Administration must take this issue seriously.

In his written statement, President Akıncı also expressed that some Greek Cypriot students and the members of ELAM conducted this incident to protest against the Anniversary of the Establishment of the TRNC. Stones and bottles were thrown through the Yiğitler Burcu in Lefkoşa.

Furthermore, expressing that such attitudes do not contribute to the negotiation process in any way, President Akıncı added “School Administration and teachers allowing the students to be involved in this incident is unacceptable”.
