Talat seeks international pressure on Greek Cypriots

NICOSIA, Cyprus

Greek Cypriots are refusing to speed up negotiations to reunify the island and won’t until the international community exerts pressure on them, Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat told a press conference Saturday (July 18th). While Turkey is actively supporting ongoing efforts to find a solution to the Cyprus problem, the Greek Cypriot administration still needs to demonstrate good will, he noted, adding the Turkish side has already committed to holding a referendum on reunification by the end of this year.
