Also among those present was former Chief Justice Taner Erginel and his wife, Girne lawyer Peyman Erginel, along with Serap Destegül Redif, the political affairs and legal director of the Prime Ministry.

In an addressing which received warm applause, Mr Tatar said he was “very happy to see expats in the TRNC”, adding: “As the TRNC Government, we are with you. I studied at Cambridge University and resided in the UK for many years.  We share the same values. You are a very serious asset to us.”

Speaking to Cyprus Today BRS chairman Peter Wilkins said that the Prime Minister had given “a very touching and sincere” address, and his sentiments were, “reciprocated in the warmth of the applause and the number of people who approached him afterwards to shake his hand”.

Mr Wilkins said: “It was a fantastic evening of outstanding food, and lots of dancing, with people having a great time. There was good music from Duet Maestro who played soft melodic music, and Alper Cengiz and his fabulous Soul Stuff blues band – acclaimed for their international success –who performed numerous popular rock hits. They tailored their playlist especially for the occasion and it included a lot of Elvis and Beatles songs, which we all loved.”

BRS Health and Welfare Secretary Julian Mawdesly said: “Studio Aleyn of Lefkoşa was present to take photos of people and the proceeds of that will go to help funding 17 underprivildeged children at different schools with their school fees, uniforms and stationery. 

"The raffle held on the night, meanwhile, raised money for the Adult Special Needs Rehabilitation Centre in Karakum and for state hospitals."
