Sabanci said that a mechanism should be developed by the EU and the world public opinion should reward TRNC as well. Sabanci said that the referenda to be held in April 24 were a critical turning point of Cyprus history.
He said, "despite some risks and uncertainties on derogations, we are in the opinion that this plan serves the interests of TRNC and Turkey." He also stated that through the referenda, the will of both parties in Cyprus to live together would be tested.
Sabanci also vowed to encourage his group to invest in Turkish Cyprus.
