Akıncı deflects pessimism about Cyprus Summit

President Mustafa Akıncı stressed that it is overly pessimistic to describe the Summit in Mont Pèlerin as having no conclusion. The President said that after a week’s break at the request of the Greek Cypriot leader, the process will continue in Switzerland. However he said it should not be a long process and that the aim of the Turkish Cypriot side was to reach a solution by the end of 2016.

After the Cyprus Summit in Switzerland, President Akıncı returned to the TRNC on Saturday night and made a press statement at Ercan Airport. Akıncı said that they carried out work related to four Chapters during the first two days of the Summit, and afterwards they worked on certain criteria on the Territory issue.

The President also noted that they had started initial discussions on the issues of Security and Guaranties. President Akıncı concluded by saying: “As we stated before we went, all issues were on the table and they were addressed alternately.”
