While remembering the war veterans and their sacrifices in the struggle for the establishment of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus some 38 years ago, Mrs Dilsad Senol TRNC’s Representative in Islamabad reiterated her people’s commitment to keep their country free from aggression and pursue the course of democracy, economy, respect to social equality, human rights and independence.

She expressed these views addressing a reception that marked the 38th anniversary of the National Day of the TRNC.

The reception was tastefully organized at the official residence of the Representative with flag of the country flying high and red colour illuminating all the corners of the venue.

Director General (Afghanistan, Iran & Turkey) Ministry of the Foreign Affairs, Asif Hussain Memon was the chief guest on the occasion.

Among the distinguished guests who attended the event included Ambassador of Turkey Ihsan Mustafa Yurdakul, Ambassador of Palestine, Ahmed Jawad Amine Rabei, Charge d’Affaires of Malaysia Deddy Faisal, CEO of Serena Hotels Aziz Boolani and many other notable persons who had come to greet Dilsad Senol and her husband Akýn Can Þenol on the auspicious occasion.

Our country has been at the forefront of the Eastern Mediterranean in tourism and higher education which are also two main sectors of our economy, said Dilsad Senol.

With regard to the Cyprus Problem, she said many efforts have been made in the past five decades to resolve the problem peacefully but without any result.

Despite the continuous goodwill and constructive approach shown by the Turkish Cypriot side, these efforts and numerous rounds of negotiations facilitated by the UN failed to yield any positive result, she regretted.
