Turkish FM says new Cypriot president should have met with his Turkish Cypriot counterpart

Newly elected Greek Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades should have met with his Turkish Cypriot counterpart, Derviş Eroğlu, after winning recent elections, Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu said April 7 criticizing the new leader’s actions in office so far.

“The attitude [Anastasiades] adopted after the elections has created disappointment. Mr. Eroğlu made a call for a meeting at the earliest [opportunity] and sent a letter. We were all expecting that both could have at least come together [by now], but the information that we have obtained lends the impression that this won’t be possible in the near future,” Davutoğlu said during a press conference in Istanbul with his Irish counterpart, Eamon Gilmore.
