Eroglu Issues Ultimatum
Turkish-Cypriot 'prime minister' Dervis Eroglu today issued an ultimatum in a statement saying that 'either there will be a settlement or we will evaluate the steps to be taken with motherland Turkey.'
Speaking from London, he said that he shared the view of Turkish prime minister Tayyip Erdogan that Cyprus 'negotiations could not last forever', adding that 'even UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon had said that the process took longer than expected.'
According to the statement, Eroglu said that nobody has the right to leave 'the Turkish Cypriot people's future in limbo with never-ending argumants.' There is a need for a settlement in order to end these discussions, said Eroglu.
Eroglu is in the running for the top position in the Turkish-Cypriot community, with elections set for April 18th.
