Turkish Cypriot foreign minister called for "an immediate start of peace talks" aimed at finding a comprehensive solution to the Cyprus problem.
"Negotiations must start immediately. It is impossible to accept any pre-condition for the two leaders to talk," Turgay Avci said.
Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of a foreign ministers' meeting of the Organization for the Islamic Conference in Ugandan capital, Kampala, Avci also urged the European Union to live up to its word to lift economic isolations on the Turkish Cypriots, which he said would force the Greek Cypriot side to sit at the negotiation table.
The Organization of the Islamic Conference has given the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC) the status of a constituent state, making the TRNC an observer member of the organization.
