The roundtable meeting held on Saturday in the fenced-off city of Maraş under the auspices of the TRNC Prime Ministry was on the agenda of the Republic’s Assembly on Monday.

Addressing the plenary, Prime Minister Ersin Tatar noted that the opening of the fenced-off city under the Turkish Cypriot administration will contribute greatly to the TRNC economically.

He added that this view was widely supported by the public.

Tatar argued that Maraş was not being exploited for political purposes and recalled that the issue was among the first issues raised by the government.

He said the ultimate goal of the inventory being carried out was to open Maraş.

“The support provided by the Turkish government and the high level Turkish officials has made us happy. Views were expressed at the meeting and the Union of the Turkish Bar Associations will also issue a final communiqué,” the premier added.

Tatar also reminded that a similar meeting was organized by the Union of Turkish Bar Associations in Ankara last September.

“It is a new excitement, new game and a new page. We should discuss other things. The Maraş initiative is a move. Should we wait for another 50 years? We may not be a part of international law or we might not be recognized internationally but our state continues to grow despite the difficulties we face. The statements Mr. Oktay and other Turkish officials have made have brought us relief. These have nothing to do with the elections.” Tatar said.
