President Ersin Tatar on Thursday received members of the Beşparmak Think Tank.
Speaking during the visit, President Ersin Tatar noted that there were those who want to impose a solution on the Turkish Cypriot people and to reduce them to a minority within a unitary state under the name of a federal settlement.
“That’s why the message given during November 15 Republic Day celebrations was very important” said Tatar.
Noting that for years the Turkish Cypriot people were being subjected to unjust isolations and embargoes, Tatar said that he had drawn attention to the grievances of the Turkish Cypriot people during his recent meeting with the Greek Cypriot leader Nicos Anastasiades.
Explaining that every nation had a right to self determination, President Tatar said that the Turkish Cypriot people have their own state and have been waging a struggle for existence on this island for the past 400 years.
At the end of the visit President Ersin Tatar congratulated the Beşparmak Think Tank for the work they have carried out and wished them success in their future endeavours.
