UBP Deputy and candidate for the party leadership, Nazım Çavuşoğlu, commenting on former Greek Cypriot Foreign Minister Markoullis statements in the press regarding the negotiation process said that he was shocked by the statements.

Markoullis stated that Turkish Armed Forces should withdraw from the island as soon as possible, Turkish citizens who settled after 1974 should return and these should be the main conditions of a settlement.

Çavuşoğlu responding to these claims said that such statements only fuelled a non-solution, adding that the Greek Cypriots expel a part of the TRNC citizens and we could not remain silent to this any longer.

Çavuşoğlu said conditions such as these were a violation of human rights and human nature; recent statements by Greek Cypriot officials reflected how they rejected Turkey’s full and effective guarantee on the island.
