Turkish Cypriot daily Kibrisli newspaper (30.08.15) reports that Yilmaz Bora, the chairman of the TMT organization, stated that federation is a suicide and claimed that “there is a legal state in the northern part of Cyprus that should be recognized”.
“We are known for saying no. You know why we say no? Because a federation and a United Cyprus is suicide for the Turkish Cypriots”, he alleged. He went on and added that they do not want any international guarantees adding that the only guarantee they need is that of motherland Turkey. “After 40 years they are talking about a federal Cyprus. This is a trick and a fallacy”, he alleged claiming that the breakaway regime is better off than many other “countries” in the world.
