Speaking during a visit Akıncı said “EU replacing UN is out of question. This is not in anybody’s agenda anyway and there is no requests or demands for this to happen. We expect EU to include the solution we find into their own process.”
Akıncı said that they are about to start the substantive talks and indicating the importance of the period ahead, Akıncı added that the process could not be handled alone by any party. “This process needs to be carried out together with the whole community” said Akıncı.
Akıncı emphasized the importance of sharing information on the talks with the public and said that the presidency was not hiding anything from the people.
