Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC) Foreign Minister Tahsin Ertugruloglu will begin a two-day working visit to Turkiye today for talks, the Turkish Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

Turkish Foreign Minister Hakan Fidan and Ertugruloglu will discuss bilateral relations, as well as the current situation in Cyprus.

Cyprus has been mired in a decades-long dispute between Turkish Cypriots and Greek Cypriots despite a series of diplomatic efforts by the UN to achieve a comprehensive settlement.

Turkiye fully supports a two-state solution on the island based on sovereign equality and equal international status between its two states.
