Speaking at the UN Human Rights Council, TRNC Geneva Representative Ayda Soylu indicated that Turkey supports restarting of the Cyprus negotiations immediately and its finalization.
Stating that UN’s report on human rights in Cyprus does not address the isolations and human rights violation imposed upon TRNC by Greek Cypriot administration, Soylu pointed out that at the 28th session of the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva, it is said that Turkish Cypriots’ human rights were infringed deeply because of the lack of a solution on the island. Soylu added:
“Increasing discrimination and violence against the TRNC citizens, violent attacks against Turkish and Muslim monuments, refusing arbitrarily the social rights of TRNC citizens, discrimination at crossings by denying freedom of religion and travel are included in this report. Turkey supports restarting of the Cyprus negotiations immediately and its finalization”.
Finally Soylu said “We hope the desire of TRNC for a final solution of the Cyprus issue without preconditions will match with the same desire of the other side.”
