Tatar advocates ''two-state solution'' in London meetings

Readiness for direct flights from the new illegal airport in Tymbou


Ersin Tatar, the Turkish Cypriot leader, recently engaged with British MPs and members of the Turkish Cypriot community in London. Discussing the "two-state solution," Tatar emphasized Turkey's unwavering support for this approach.

Tatar asserted that all parties acknowledge the existence of "two states" in Cyprus, urging Turkish Cypriots to safeguard their rights. He proposed enhanced cooperation between the two peoples and states in Cyprus, calling on the UK to reevaluate its policy and meet the expectations of the Turkish Cypriot people.

Highlighting the necessity of Turkey's guarantees, Tatar underscored the injustice of one side being an EU member while the other faces unjust embargoes despite affirming agreements. He called for an end to this inequality.

Addressing questions, Tatar expressed readiness for direct flights from the new illegal airport in Tymbou, emphasizing that hindering such activities goes against human rights. He urged the UK to align its policy with the realities on the ground.

In London, Tatar met with Conservative Party MPs, media representatives, and was interviewed on the Islam Channel. He also engaged in discussions on the Cyprus problem, "unjust isolation," direct trade, and the significance of UK-Turkish Cypriot relations based on equality.

Heading to Turkey, Tatar visited Biletzyk, meeting with veterans of the 1974 Turkish invasion. He is set to receive an honorary doctorate at the opening ceremony of the 2023-2024 academic year at Bilecik Şeyh Edebali University.

Tomorrow, Tatar will continue his engagements in Ikonio, meeting with invasion veterans and attending the 7th Defence Industry Suppliers' Meeting. Stay tuned for updates on Tatar's efforts in shaping Cyprus's future amidst contemporary challenges.
