During the meeting, the President of the Republic briefed the members of the National Council on the deliberations and results of his meetings in Berlin, both with the UN Secretary-General and with the Secretary-General and Mr. Akinci.
The President of the Republic reiterated, as he had previously underlined in the meetings mentioned above, the sincere will and determination of our side to immediately resume negotiations on the basis of the solution sought by the bi-zonal bicommunal federation.
