Stating that there is no blockage in the negotiations and the difficult issues have been discussed, President Mustafa Akıncı emphasized that the negotiators will study harder to speed up the negotiation process.

Akıncı said: “If we make a compromise for the rest of the points of the four chapters discussed previously in the following 1-2 months, the aftermath of solving the issues of territory and security-guarantees, I hope that 2016 will be the year that we take a step for a permanent peace in Cyprus. We can make a settlement which can be approved by both sides and make the future of Cyprus better than today”.

President Akıncı also mentioned about the “rotating presidency” and he said: “Our attitude on this issue is very clear, but the Greek Cypriot side has some problems on the issue, that is why there is no agreement on this issue yet but I think reconciliation is inevitable”.

Furthermore, mentioning the issue of “citizenship”, President Mustafa Akıncı said: “My opinion on this issue is not a secret, I’m conducting the negotiations according to the official data of the TRNC. Therefore, the seriousness on the negotiating table should continue.”
