Eroglu: the negotiation process cannot last foreverTurkish Cypriot illegal Bayrak television (20.06.11, online) reports that Turkish Cypriot leader Dervis Eroglu expressed the view that if a solution is to be found to the Cyprus problem, it will be during the next 3-5 months, adding that the talks can’t continue forever. He also noted that a lasting agreement could not disregard the incidents of the past and the realities of the present and said that the Turkish Cypriot side would continue to display its good intentions at the negotiation table. “We will keep participating in the negotiations until the United Nations Secretary General reveals his final judgment on the matter… If an agreement is to be made, it should be achieved during the next 3-5 months. The process cannot continue forever,” Eroglu said.
Eroglu statements took place during a meeting he had yesterday with officials from the “Remembrance Society of Martyrs” of occupied Aloa, Maratha and Sandallaris villages. The chairman of the society Ahmet As1r expressed full support to Eroglu and presented him with a translated English copy of the book “1955-1974 Step by Step Genocide”. As1r also informed Eroglu that they had sent copies of the book to the European Court of Human Rights’ Judges and the UN Secretary General.
