Under the front-page title: “The Greek Cypriots are unwilling for the solution”, Turkish Cypriot daily Bakis newspaper (16.09.15) reports that the general secretary of the Democratic party-National Forces (DP-UG) Hasan Tacoy, in a written statement, accused the Greek Cypriots of unwillingness to solve the Cyprus problem and called upon those who support it in the Turkish Cypriot side that a significant progress is achieved at the Cyprus negotiation talks, openly to say who it favors and what the progress is.
Accusing the Greek Cypriot side for having excessive demands at the negotiating table, Tacoy claimed that the Greek Cypriot sides’ positions on the Cyprus problem are not different than those in 2004. He also accused the Greek Cypriot side for using delaying tactics at the talks.
Referring to recent statements made by the leader of the Republican Turkish Party-United Forces (CTP-BG) Mehmet Ali Talat that an “important progress” has been achieved at the talks, Tacoy described Talat’s statements as very strange and invited him to give details on the progress he mentioned.
Tacoy went on and said that the Turkish Cypriot “people” will never give up from the “sovereignty of the state they established, their rights and their independence”.
