Ban Ki-moon plan for Cyprus might be shaped

World Bulletin / News Desk

Turkish Minister for EU Affairs and Chief Negotiator Egemen Bagis said on Sunday a new UN plan or maybe a so called Ban Ki-moon plan would be shaped in regards to Cyprus.

Turkey will receive the the Greek Cypriot negotiator for Cyprus dispute soon, and Athens will receive the negotiator of Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC) said Bagis in a televised program over the negotiations on the Cyprus issue.

Bagis stressed that solution in the Cyprus issue would provide Turkey the opportunity to open 12 chapters in its EU accession process.

"If Cyprus issue would be solved, Turkey is at the point to open 12 chapters for its EU talks, and also to fulfill the requirements for 10 of them shortly after opening." said Bagis.

The island has been divided into Greek and Turkish sides during the Greek Cypriot coup, which was followed by a Turkish peace mission to aid Turkish Cypriots in the north in 1974.

Turkish peace mission? Do you know a bit of history? Thousands of innocent people killed by Turkish in 1974.
