Turkish Cypriot PM to seek Erdogan's help to defuse tension over anti-Tukey demonstration in TRNC

As an anti-Ankara demonstration in the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC) early this month remains a hot topic between Turkey and the TRNC, Turkish Cypriot Prime Minister Irsen Kucuk is scheduled to arrive in Ankara today for talks with top Turkish officials. Accompanied by a high-level delegation including Foreign Minister Huseyin Ozgurgun, Finance Minister Ersing Tatar and Economy Minister Sunak Atun, Kucuk will meet separately with Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Deputy Prime Minister Cemil Cicek. During their meeting, Erdogan will reportedly ask Kucuk to account for the anti-Ankara signs seen in the demonstration, which prompted a strong reaction in Turkey, as well as to prevent the recurrence of such incidents. Turkish Cypriot sources say Kucuk will give Erdogan guarantees they the TRNC will implement an economic program supported by Turkey, and ask for Erdogan's help to defuse tension between their countries. Turkey annually gives the TRNC hundreds of millions of Turkish liras in aid. In related news, Turkish Foreign Undersecretary Feridun Sinirlioglu will leave for the TRNC today to hold talks on comprehensive negotiations between the TRNC and the Greek Cypriot administration to find a just and lasting solution to the Cyprus issue. During his visit, Sinirlioglu will meet with his Turkish Cypriot counterpart and will also be received by President Dervis Eroglu
