“We are planning to start negotiations intensively in October and get result from it.” Eroglu said after meeting with UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in New York, “As a Turkish side, we’ve stressed that we are ready to make result oriented negotiations immediately for a comprehensive solution.” He than accused the south of not wanting a solution. by saying that the “Turkish Cypriot side wants to solve the problem and has proved this with the referendum, but Greek Cypriot side have shown they don’t want to solve the problem by rejecting all the plans proposed so far.”

He then went on to explain how the Cyprus Problem could be solved by March 2014:

“If Greek Cypriot side comes to the table in order to solve the problem, we will reach an agreement on the fundamental issues by the end of the year and on the details by January or February in 2014. Thus, we could resolve the problem completely in March with a referendum to be held in both sides.”
