Turkish Cyprus says determined to pursue solution to issue

President Mehmet Ali Talat of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC) said, "efforts to resolve the Cyprus issue through negotiations cannot continue forever. We need to prepare our people for solution while making efforts for the solution."

Holding a joint news conference together with Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, President Talat said, "Turkish Cypriot party is determined to maintain the negotiation process with the same determination to find a solution under the United Nations parameters."

"It is our most important priority to find a solution to the Cyprus issue. The agreement will be put into referendum. Therefore, we need to prepare our people for solution while making efforts for the solution. We expect the same attitude from the Greek Cypriot administration," he said.

President Talat said, "I believe that both Turkish Cypriots and Greek Cypriots are ready for a solution. The most important thing at this point that politicians should act correctly at the right time and create the necessary dynamics for a solution."

President Talat also highlighted importance of Turkey's support to the Turkish Cypriots.
