Ways of developing relations between the National Unity Party (UBP) and the European Conservatives and Reformists grouping were discussed during the meeting. Views were also exchanged on the Cyprus Problem.
Prime Minister Ersin Tatar is being accompanied by the UBP General Secretary Ersan Saner and former Foreign Minister Tahsin Ertuğruloğlu.
Speaking during the meeting, Jan Zahradil from the European Conservatives and Reformists said he was pleased to have met with the UBP leader and Prime Minister Ersin Tatar and discussed the views of the Turkish Cypriot people.
Prime Minister Ersin Tatar for his part thanked Mr Zahradil for speaking in support of the Turkish Cypriot side during discussions in 2014 on the registration of Hellim as a Product of Origin.
Tatar said that they will continue to inform everyone on the just cause of the Turkish Cypriot people as part of the proactive policies they were pursuing.
He added that they wanted to further develop relations with the European Conservatives and Reformists group.
“Turkish Cypriots belong in Europe. It is the Greek Cypriot side’s intransigence which is preventing this. We need to change this. Our efforts will continue in this direction,” he added.
