The Cyprus Turkish Resistance Fighters’ Association, headed by Yilmaz Bora, handed the letter to the UNFICYP official at the Ledra Palace Gate today to be delivered to the UN Chief Ban Ki Moon.
Speaking there, the President of the Association Yilmaz Bora said that Turkish Cypriots, who have been living in peace under the roof of their own state, no longer see the necessity to live together with Greek Cypriots in a “united” Cyprus.
“The Cyprus problem can be solved with the recognition of the TRNC as a separate state” Bora stressed.
In the letter, Bora criticized the international community for treating the Greek Cypriot Administration as the so-called Cyprus Republic at the expense of
the vested rights of the Turkish Cypriots.
“No one should expect the Turkish Cypriot Side to wait another half a century for the Greek Cypriot Side to develop the necessary will for a solution. We believe that it is possible for the two peoples of Cyprus to live as two neighbouring states just as Turkey and Greece” Bora wrote in the letter.
