Recalling that Papadopulous playing upon the state of being without solution, Talat said, "The Greek Cypriot side will understand only by this way that the things were not going in their favour. Saying that the most important element of the removal of isolation was the launching of direct trade but that it could not have been realized, the Turkish Cypriot
leader invited the Commission to make more steps to remove the isolation."
Talat said, "There are three important regulations in front of us. Amendments were made on the Green Line Regulation and it is waiting for a final approval. About the Financial Aid and Direct Trade Regulations, it was expressed that the Commission maintained its attitude and both regulations completed each other."
Expressing that the primary indicator of the removal of isolation from the perspective of the Turkish Cypriots was the Direct Trade Regulation, Talat stressed that however, the Commission had discomforts with regards to timing. And the reply given to Talat was that ways of ensuring expansions about the regulations were being looked into.
The Commission conveyed Talat its opinion that although it considered the Green Line, Direct Trade and Financial Aid Regulations as complementary elements, they could be put into effect with different timings.
Talat sent a message to Papadopulous saying, "He always makes reference to Turkey and Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Papadopulous has to learn something. The address is "we", whether you say Turkish Cypriot society, Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus or whatever you say."
Talat drew attention to the dialogue need on the island.
