The speakers discussed the UK’s constitutional responsibilities to the Republic of Cyprus, Niyazi Kizilyurek said:
“Here we celebrate the birth of the Republic of Cyprus, thus Cyprus has rapidly matured but still in a tragic situation. Cyprus is still divided and continues with endless negotiations.
We need to criticize ourselves and be aware of the effects of the current situation. As Turkish Cypriots and Greek Cypriots, we must think about our past, face our past and look in the mirror. We created the Turkish and Greek troops.
An interesting comment was made by Glafkos Klerides about the flag of the Republic of Cyprus, he said ‘This is the best flag because no one is ready to die for it’. This meant no one embraced it. The Republic of Cyprus was an unwanted child.”
