Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu met members of the new Turkish Cypriot ‘cabinet’ during a private visit to the north on Sunday.
A new coalition was sealed on Saturday comprising the National Unity Party UBP and Serdar Denktash’s DP party after the former ‘government’ of the UBP and Republican Turkish Party (CTP) collapsed two weeks ago.
Cavusoglu met ‘prime minister’ Huseyin Ozgurgun, the presence of ‘deputy prime minister’ and ‘finance minister’ Denktash and ‘foreign minister’ Tahsin Ertugruloglu, CNA reported.
The Turkish Foreign Minister said that moving forward was not only good for the ‘TRNC’ but also for progress on the Cyprus issue.
Ozgurgun said the new ‘government’s’ main goal was to work in cooperation with Turkey.
Cavusoglu was expected to return to Turkey later on Sunday.
