Omirou Says Recent Turkish Cypriot Actions Undermines UN Talks

Yiannakis Omirou, the president of the Parliament of the Republic of Cyprus declared 0n August 29 that a document submitted by the Turkish Cypriots to the UN “through Turkey`s permanent mission in New York constitutes a serious blow to the Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci`s  credibility,” CNA reported.

Omirou said the document, along with Akinci`s recent statements, “that the property issue will be solved by compensation, constitute a political attitude that directly undermines the prospects of the ongoing UN-led negotiations on the Cyprus problem,” according to CNA.

“The document circulated to the UN by Turkey on behalf of the puppet regime, referring to two sovereign and independent states in Cyprus and to a defunct Republic of Cyprus constitutes a major blow to the Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci`s credibility and intentions,” Omirou said.
