MP talks with EU official about Cyprus issue

Main Opposition Republican Turkish Party MP Armağan Candan was in Paris to meet with Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (Pace) president Liliane Maury Pasquier.

The pair discussed the Cyprus issue and the outcome of a meeting between President Mustafa Akıncı, Greek Cypriot leader Nicos Anastasiades and UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres in Berlin on November 25, according to a written statement on Tuesday by the TRNC Parliament. Mr Candan also participated in committee meetings, the statement said.

Following the “tripartite” meeting in Berlin, Mr Candan said there was an “expectation” that a “five-party” meeting involving the two sides of Cyprus and its three guarantor countries – Turkey, Greece and the UK – would take place after next year’s TRNC presidential elections.

That would signal the start of a “phased and results-orientated negotiations process” he said.

“It has been underlined that the process based on [achieving] a federal solution will be different to previous processes,” Mr Candan stated.

It was “important” for Turkish Cypriots to be “visible” in the international arena, he added, and thanked Ms Pasquier for her “close relations with the Turkish Cypriot community”.
