-We should not sacrifice a solution in Cyprus for natural gas, says
Special Envoy of TRNC President
LEFKOSA (A.A) - August 21, 2011 - Turkish Cypriot President Dervis
Eroglu's Special Envoy, Kudret Ozersay, said that the Turkish Cypriots and Greek
Cypriots were "not enemies".
In an interview with a Greek Cypriot newspaper on Sunday, Ozersay said
that "Cyprus had a last chance for a solution. Let us not sacrifice a solution in
Cyprus for natural gas".
Ozersay's comments came after the Greek Cypriots recently expressed a
desire for extracting natural gas in the shores of southern Cyprus.
Ozersay also said that the Turkish Cypriots wanted sovereignty that was
similar to the Swiss model.
