 CTP warns against Turkey-linked economic solutionsAccording to illegal Bayrak radio 1 (15:30 hours, 4.5.00) the Republican Turkish Party (CTP) has warned that measures to be implemented by the National Unity Party-Communal Liberation Party "coalition government" under the banner of reform could drag the people of the pseudostate into further destitution.
In a written statement, CTP leader Mehmet Ali Talat said that all the sectors are experiencing the worse period of the past quarter century. Talat criticized the fact that the solutions are expected from Turkey. Talat declared: "Pinning our hopes only on recipes originating from Turkey, while our own potential is evident, is both wrong and open to serious dangers in the future". At this critical juncture, Talat called on Denktash and Ankara to act with more caution.
Talat charged that the "coalition government" and Denktash are indifferent to the destitution of the people and the various sectors, adding that the people have lost their confidence in the "government" and practically in all its institutions.
