    [01] OIC support for Turkish Cypriot being sought

    According to illegal Bayrak radio (5:00 hours, 3.10.96) Turkey asked for the support of the Islamic community on behalf of the Turkish Cypriots and the Turkish minority living in Western Thrace, during the OIC (Organization of the Islamic Conference) foreign ministers coordination meeting in New York. Attending the meeting were Taner Etkin. "Foreign Affairs and Defense Minister", Ambassador Huseyin Celem, Turkey's permanent representative at the United Nations, and Osman Ertug, the pseudostate's so-called representative in New York.

    Addressing the meeting on behalf of Turkey, Celem briefed the Islamic Foreign Minister regarding the recent developments in Cyprus. He claimed that the nonsolution of the discord on the island, which has been continuing for years, stems from the lack of the political will needed for a solution on the part of the Greek Cypriots.

    Celem alleged that the resumption of direct talks between the two communities will reduce the tension on the island. He claimed that regarding one of the sides in Cyprus as politically superior to the other constitutes the biggest obstacle to reaching a solution.

    Celem reiterated Turkey's support for the goodwill mission of the UN Secretary General on the Cyprus issue and asked for the support of the Islamic community regarding the "TRNC".
