The President of the Republican Turkish Party (CTP) Tufan Erhurman reiterated yesterday in his statements that his party's position on the Cyprus issue is clear and known to all and noted that the formula for the solution of the Cyprus problem in this country is this of the bi-zonal, bi-communal federation.
According to Detay, in a statement on Kibris TV in the occupied territories, Erhurman said that all his party's candidates for the "elections" support the position that the basis for a solution to the Cyprus problem is a federation.
Stressing that the Turkish Cypriot community is increasingly distancing itself from the international community because of the wrong policies being implemented. Erhurman said that every country needs external financial resources in order to survive.
He said that the external resources of the pseudo-state "come from Turkey and the EU. We receive 30 million Euros a year from the EU. What we are saying is that the EU should give us a lot more financial resources. When we talk about equality, there should be economic equality," Erhurman said, arguing that the gap between the economic situation of Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots is growing daily.
