On April 5, Tatar meets Guterres in New York Liberal


The Secretary-General of the United Nations, Antonio Guterres invited the Turkish Cypriot leader Ersin Tatar in New York for a meeting, writes the Turkish Cypriot newspaper “Kipris”.

According to the Press and Information Office, the publication of “Cyprus” states that the United Nations intensified their efforts to determine whether there is common ground for the resumption of negotiations.

The newspaper reports that the Guterres-Tatar meeting will take place on April 5 at the offices of the international organization in New York and Mr. Tatar will be accompanied by his special representative, Gunes Onar.

The newspaper recalls that the Secretary General met with President Nikos Christodoulidis in Brussels on March 21, on the sidelines of the European Union Summit, and adds that the meeting with Mr. Tatar is part of the framework of reciprocity, in an effort to maintain an equal approach to both sides.

The publication notes that the meeting will take place in the context of an investigation by the UN into whether there is common ground. It is added that Ersin Tatar will convey to the General Secretary that “the inherent sovereign right of the Turkish Cypriot side could not be discussed at the negotiation table”.

The newspaper also notes that Mr. Tatar will also mention how “it is highly necessary to accept the sovereign equality and equal international status of the Turkish Cypriots to enable the resumption of negotiations and that it insists that this be recorded”.

It is expected that Mr Tatar will say that “it is no longer possible for one of the two sides sitting at the table to be accepted as a state and the other as a community and that he cannot accept the model of federation, which is based on one sovereignty”.

It is also reported that Mr. Tatar will again brief the UN Secretary General on the “reality that Turkish Cypriots are subjected to isolation and embargo” according to his claim, while he will invite him “to propose a policy based on the realities in Cyprus”.

According to the Turkish Cypriot newspaper, it is expected that at the meeting, Mr. Tatar will make the claim that during her contacts, the personal envoy of the UN Secretary-General, Maria Angela Holguin Cuellar, must have established that there is no common ground between sides and will demand that an accurate report be submitted to the UN Security Council on the “realities” in Cyprus.
