FORMER Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat said that the result of the presidential elections would indicate what type of Cyprus settlement Greek Cypriots wanted.
In an interview with Politis, published on Sunday, Talat said that he believed a true opportunity was lost in Crans-Montana. Regarding the plan B of the Turkish Cypriot side, Talat said that there was no such a thing nor would there be.
A solution must come only through negotiations, he said. Both sides could agree to proceed with a talks outside the UN framework, but any solution would still have to be the result of negotiations, he said.
The Plan B, he said, could exist only in relation to negotiations, and not in relation to the future of the island.
He added that there was great disappointment among Turkish Cypriots over the outcome of the Conference on Cyprus.
