“The Turkish Cypriot side has, with full sincerity, acted constructively” Mr. Yildirim told a joint news conference with the prime minister of the breakaway Turkish Cypriot state, Huseyin Ozgurgun.
“This is the last chance for the Greek Cypriot side, which has always acted as the game spoiler. We recommend they use this chance wisely” Turkish Prime Minister Yildirim added.
Turkey is the only state that recognises Ozgurgun's administration. The international community regards the Greek Cypriot government in the south of the island as the only legitimate authority for the whole island, which has been split since a Turkish invasion in 1974 and the ongoing occupation.
