The delegations of the Communal Democracy Party (TDP) and the Greek Cypriot Democratic Mobilization Party (DISI) came together.
At the meeting which took place at the Headquarters of the TDP, the leader of TDP Cemal Özyiğit stated that their meeting comprised one more step towards strengthening inter-party relations, on the basis of mutual respect and understanding. Özyiğit also stated that they exchanged their views on the Cyprus Problem and the solution efforts carried out by the leader of the Greek Cypriot Administration Anastasiades and President Mustafa Akıncı.
Özyiğit thanked the leader of DISI and noted that they agreed on the issue of reunifying the island and to reach a settlement although they have ideological differences with each other.
Stating that they will continue to work with DISI in order to give full support to the intensive Cyprus negotiations, Özyiğit mentioned that the Joint Declaration on 11 February 2014 is important and he also expressed his wish that the visit of 4 Foreign Ministers to the island in November will be realized “not as a foreign intervention” but as a “contribution to the solution.”
Mentioning that reaching a solution is important and the federal Cyprus that will be formed as a result, will be part of the EU, Özyiğit said that the bi-zonality and bi-communality are important for the Turkish Cypriots.
Özyiğit added that the bi-communal festival which will be organized on 19 December aims to bring people from the two communities closer and lend support to the leaders in their effort to reach a settlement.
