Former Turkish Cypriot negotiator Ergun Olgun, referring to the recent statement made by President Akinci on guarantees and security, has argued that it is the Turkish Cypriot side that faces the greatest security risks.
He said that preservation of bi-zonal arrangement in Cyprus is essential. This should be a fundamental criterion when solving the property issue.
Olgun also noted that he disagreed with Greek Cypriot Foreign Minister Andreas Kasoulides’ assertion that “a solution to the Cyprus problem is 95 to 98% done.”
He said that if there was a 98% agreement, then this work would have finished today. Kasoulides’ statement, Ergun said, does not reflect reality.
