Mainland will continue to aid development in North Cyprus

Tugrul Turkes, Turkey’s Deputy Prime Minister responsible for Cyprus Affairs, has said that Turkey’s aid to the TRNC, aims at “creating a strong state structure” and an “economic system”, which will be “self-sufficient, harmonised with the global conditions, competitive and sustainable”.

Addressing the 9th Eurasian Economic Forum held in Istanbul, Turkes referred also to the Cyprus talks and said: “We are aware of the importance of the negotiating process for the TRNC. I want to once more confirm that our government is and will continue being by the Turkish Cypriots’ side”.

Turkes said that regardless of the Cyprus negotiations, Turkey is determined to continue granting to the TRNC any kind of “financial, economic and social aid”.
