Spanish government invites TRNC President for talks

President Talat explained that Spanish Foreign Minister Miguel Angel Moratinos’ invitation to talks was the first time an EU country had done so. As Spain currently holds the rotating presidency of the EU this is a very important move.

President Talat said that Moratinos promised that “he would do everything in his power to help the TRNC. Spain wants to deal with the Cyprus issue seriously as president of the European Union. The most important aspect of this visit was that Spain, which holds the rotating presidency of the Union, invited us. Any EU presidency has not invited us before. Spain was the first.”

This official recognition is promising as is the expectation that during Spain’s 6 months presidency four areas will be opened in Turkey’s negotiations for EU entry.
