Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu met Turkish Cypriot leader Dervis Eroglu on Saturday in order to discuss developments in the Cyprus problem negotiations since last December.
Addressing the press before the meeting, Davutoglu said he was deeply involved in the negotiations.
According to Davutoglu, the meeting’s agenda would include the recent increased international interest on the Cyprus problem. During his last visit, he said, he and Eroglu had performed a “comprehensive evaluation.”
On his part, Eroglu expressed his satisfaction at seeing the Turkish Foreign Minister in Cyprus again and noted that for years they had been on the same page on the Cyprus problem.
“In December you were here and our consultations continued,” Eroglu said. “We are trying to achieve a positive result in the negotiations, and if the other side is similarly inclined we continue to believe that results are forthcoming. As always, we need your support.”
“Our cooperation is continuous, and it is important to reaffirm that we are not alone,” he added. “We thank you and your government.”
Eroglu also welcomed Foreign Undersecretary Feridun Sinirlioglu, who also attended the meeting, along with Turkish Cypriot negotiator Kudret Ozersay.
Davutoglu was scheduled to depart for Turkey later on Saturday.
