DP-UG Leader Serdar Denktaş stated that their expectation from President Mustafa Akıncı who lead the negotiation process is to protect the TRNC in the negotiations at least like the Greek Cypriots who protect the ‘Republic of Cyprus.’

Denktaş said that they expect the whole world to respect the decision of the Turkish Cypriot people given in a possible referendum to be held after the negotiation process.

In his written statement, DP Leader Serdar Denktaş stated that the statement of President Akıncı as: “The founding state will be established by the transformation of the TRNC” is extremely important if it is discussed with regards to the Greek Cypriot side’s attitude and approach.

Denktas said: “The Greek Cypriot side should understand that if the Republic of Cyprus which we established as the two partners in the year 1960 and which has been occupied by them since 1963 is going to be transformed into one of the founding states of the new Federal Cyprus, only then the TRNC can be one of these founding states.”
