Burcu: “Anastasiades made it clear that they cannot accept political equality”

Presidential Spokesperson Barış Burcu said that Greek Cypriot Leader Nikos Anastasiades made it clear in his address to his people that they cannot accept the political equality of the Turkish Cypriot people and their active participation in decision making in Cyprus.

Burcu said that President Mustafa Akıncı will share his views with the public opinion on Monday 12th November at a comprehensive meeting.

Presidential Spokesperson Burcu evaluated Greek Cypriot leader Anastasiades’ statements.

Burcu said “Anastasiades has recently spoken about a loose federation or decentralized federation. Yet he did not clarify these views during his meeting with President Akıncı or during his address to his people, therefore we cannot understand what he means.

Furthermore, in his statement Burcu expressed that the Turkish Cypriot side’s active participation in all decision making processes within the framework of federal authority is sine qua non for the Turkish Cypriots, and our political equality is not up for discussion.
