Thursday, April 18, 2013
President of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC) Dervis Eroglu received a delegation from Turkey`s EU Ministry in Lefkosa.
Speaking while receiving the Turkish delegation, President Eroglu underlined that the EU had to accept the existence of the Turkish Cypriot state, the plane trips to and from the TRNC and how the Turkish Cypriots travelled to all corners of the world, if it said it saw TRNC as an interlocutor.
I am pleased to see that Turkish Minister of EU Affairs and Chief Negotiator Egemen Bagis always brings up the issue of Cyprus, Eroglu noted.
Cyprus issue`s being on the agenda of Turkey all the time is crucial, Eroglu stated.
On the Greek Cypriot administration`s accession in the EU, President Eroglu underlined that it was a mistake on the part of the EU to admit the Greek Cypriots into the union.
