by Daily Sabah

The Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC) may hold talks with U.N. officials as well as the Greek Cypriot administration in September in New York, TRNC President Ersin Tatar said on Wednesday, reiterating that a solution based on two equal sovereign states is needed.

Speaking to Anadolu Agency (AA), Tatar said: “If this will be an official, comprehensive negotiation, then our sovereign equality must be accepted.”

Tatar highlighted that the federation solution defended by the Greek side aims for a continuation of the “Republic of Cyprus” and the removal of the TRNC.

While Greece and the Greek Cypriot administration support a federation on Cyprus, Turkey and the TRNC insist on a two-state solution reflecting the realities on the island.
