Olgun: “Region has no toleration for instability”
Turkish Cypriot negotiator Ergün Olgun stated that Turkish Cypriot side has a serious will for the solution of Cyprus problem that’s why Greek Cypriot side should show the same will. Participating in the program presented by Nazmi Pınar, Olgun made evaluations before the UN Secretary General’s Special Advisor on Cyprus Espen Barth Eide’s Cyprus visit. Indicating that there is a serious instability in the region, Ergün said “The region has no toleration for a new instability. Especially, Cyprus is in a very critical region in terms of international trade and security of energy. We are talking about a line by which 70% of petrol and energy needs of Europe are supplied as well as a line that provides 1/3 of world trade, in other words a region which needs a serious stability”. Adding that nobody desires a new instability in the region after the discovery of hydrocarbon resources, Olgun said “All political parties and political leaders in our society want to reach a sustainable result which will respect to both sides’ rights with a win-win understanding”.
