Talat demands Turkish Cyprus representation in EP

President Mehmet Ali Talat of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC) said that Turkish Cypriots should be represented at the European Parliament (EP).

President Talat told reporters on his way to Brussels to meet with European Parliament President Jerzy Buzek and other EU officials, "after becoming a full member of EU, the Greek Cypriot administration has begun using its position against Turkish Cypriots and Turkey. We believe that the president of the European Parliament should take action to prevent it. We also want to be represented at the European Parliament. We conveyed our request to the members of the European Parliament's High-Level Contact Group for Relations with the Turkish Cypriot Community during their visit to the island."

"We also demand Buzek to urge the Greek Cypriot party to make more efforts to find a solution to the Cyprus issue," he said.
