Tatar accused of sabotaging negotiations

UN relations or economic interests? Questions surround Tatar's actions

In a recent statement, The New Cyprus party has accused Ersin Tatar of undermining negotiations, alleging that he does not truly represent the Turkish Cypriots. The party has called upon all advocates for a resolution to confront Turkey's annexation and assimilation agendas, as well as Tatar's actions.

Tatar, appointed by Turkey, consistently emphasizes his alignment with Ankara's interests. Turkey, amid economic challenges, seeks to project amicable relations with the EU and the UN, using the Cyprus issue as leverage, particularly in its pursuit of updating the customs union essential for economic stability.

Notably, during Tatar's visit to The Gambia, Turkish Foreign Minister Hakan Fidan was seen cultivating a friendly rapport with the UN Secretary-General's Personal Envoy. This juxtaposition suggests, according to critics, a coordinated effort to derail negotiations, despite Turkey outwardly portraying a cooperative stance with the UN, primarily for economic incentives.

The New Cyprus party asserts that Tatar's actions highlight his disconnect from the interests of Turkish Cypriots and urges all stakeholders in the peace process to oppose Turkey's expansionist policies and Tatar's decisions.
