The Chairman of Turkish Cypriot Chamber of Commerce in UK, Dr. Muhammet Yaşarata gave a speech at the House of Lords regarding starting direct flights to the TRNC and opening way for direct trade.
Yaşarata gave his speech upon invitation of the President of House of Lords Lord Sharkey and Cypriot Baroness Hussein Ece and addressed the representatives of all parties. Stating that isolations are unfair juristically and economically, Yaşarata indicated that isolations should be lifted immediately. Expressing that with unfair isolations, EU is punishing the Turkish Cypriot people who expect EU membership, Yaşarata underlined that lifting of isolations will provide advantage for North Cyprus and all countries which she makes trade with.
Furthermore, Yaşarata said that he exchanged his views on starting direct flights to the TRNC and opening ways for direct trade, adding that very important developments will be realized in a very short time.
