Two-State Solution a Daydream: Talat

A two-state solution to the Cyprus problem is a “daydream“, former Turkish Cypriot President Mehmet Ali Talat has said. Talat noted that this was not a new idea and that late Turkish Cypriot President Rauf Denktas and Turkey had supported it until the 2000’s, but later Denktas had been forced to accept the Annan Plan, a document prepared by the UN.

Therefore, this is not something which could happen with a unilateral allegation“, he said, adding that the Turkish side is the one which is outside international law. He said:

North-Cyprus-News-Akinci-AnastasiadesAnastasiades mentioned it, but that was to avoid trouble. Afterwards he denied [that he had said] it. Two states might be mooted in Cyprus. However, this will bring us no gain. The Greek Cypriots’ propaganda network is very strong. […] They could make propaganda saying ‘they want division, they do not want federation’. It is good that now there is a president [Akinci] who supports a federal solution. The bad thing is that Turkey, after the experience of all these years, is giving an opportunity to the government here by saying that other alternatives exist. I do not believe that [Turkish Foreign Minister] Mevlut Cavusoglu has been convinced by Anastasiades’ statements. There is a chaotic environment. Efforts may be exerted to make use of it. It is nothing but daydreaming. […]
