‘United Cyprus’ Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot Teachers’ Platform welcomed the announcement of President Mustafa Akıncı and the Greek Cypriot leader Nikos Anastasiades about setting up a technical committee on the education.

Making statements on behalf of the platform, KTÖS Secretary- General Şener Elcil stated that education is shaping the attitude, understanding, behaviour and values. Elcil said, “This is a decision which has to be given before, as it is known, the education systems of two communities created consciousness that prevents living together in peace and tolerance. While the negotiations are continuing between the two leaders, there is a hope that the solution of the Cyprus problem will satisfy all the people on the island. Elcil said: “Our education system will contribute to create a positive atmosphere, to accept, to implement and to consolidate a solution in this process. Conservatism is seen among some teachers and students even today. This attitude has triggered an ethnic separation mentality which defends that the separation is the ideal solution to the Cyprus problem.”
