Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC) President Dervis Eroglu said Saturday that the upcoming trilateral summit in New York on January 22-24 would be "the last chance" for Cyprus and the United Nations.
Speaking to reporters while receiving a delegation from the Municipality of Kepez, Antalya, Eroglu said that he believed there could be a path to an agreement at the New York summit in January.
"Whether or not we will reach an agreement is yet to be seen," Eroglu underlined.
A strong motherland (Turkey) gives us Turkish Cypriots strength at the negotiation table, Eroglu added.
President Eroglu and leader of the Greek Cypriot administration Demetris Christofias will meet on January 3 and 9 prior to the New York summit.
"This six-party summit is rather impractical," presidential spokesman Ye Htut said, "I don't think it can happen at the moment."
