One of former Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash’s grandsons, Rauf Alp Denktash, is being considered for the post of the negotiator of the Turkish Cypriot side, reports in the north said.

According to Yeni Duzen, Rauf Alp Denktash, who is the late Turkish Cypriot leader’s oldest grandchild, could be the new negotiator for the Turkish Cypriot side since, according to reports, his name is among the suggested candidates for the post.

Denktash served for years in a diplomatic post for the Turkish foreign ministry in the US. He was appointed last week by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan as deputy director general for multilateral economic affairs at the Turkish foreign ministry.

Yeni Duzen reports that these rumours have not been confirmed yet, while some other sources argued that given his most recent appointment at the Turkish foreign ministry, it is unlikely he will also assume the negotiator post
