Turkish-Cypriot Leader Says Two States Only Topic on Table

NICOSIA — The nationalist leader of the Turkish-Cypriot occupied part of the island, Ersin Tatar, said he won't discuss anything else at a United Nations-sponsored meeting except for two separate states and recognition for his side.

Tatar said that's the policy of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and he's sticking to it, after saying he would do whatever the Turkish leader told him, signaling a coming logjam at the April 27-29 meeting in Geneva, Switzerland.

"With Turkey's growing power in the region and its support for the TRNC, we are going stronger to Geneva at a point of further moving our state forward," he said, using the name of the self-declared republic.

No other country in the world recognizes the occupied territory but Tatar and Erdogan want to change that although Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades said that's a non-starter for himn.

In a report, Turkey's pro-government Daily Sabah said that Tatar will argue that all attempts at reunification have failed since Turkey's unlawful 1974 invasion so it's pointless to keep trying.


NICOSIA — Ukrainian authorities have informed Cyprus about their seizure of $420 million worth of shares and securities linked to the east Mediterranean island nation, which belong to a Russian billionaire and other businessmen, a Cypriot official said Tuesday.
