Turkish Cypriot daily Kibris newspaper (15.10.13) reports that the Turkish Cypriot leader, Dervis Eroglu, stated that the aim of the Turkish side is a solution to be reached by March for the Cyprus problem and added that the Turkish Cypriot side and Turkey are in consensus on this issue.

Eroglu who issued a message for the Kurban Bayram (Feast of Sacrifice), claimed that if the Greek Cypriots have the intention, then it is not difficult for a solution to be reached if we are based on the realities of Cyprus. “But if (the Greek Cypriots) dream of returning to the pro 1974 situation, they are wasting our time to no avail”, he alleged.

He went on and added that if we are concentrated on the negotiations, it is possible for the two sides to hold referenda simultaneously until March 2014.
