  • Description

    Turkish Cypriot Leader Rauf Denktash arrived in Rawalpindi on Wednesday (15 October) as part of a tour of various countries to expose what he calls false propaganda by Greek Cypriot ruler Archbishop Makarios.

    On arrival in the Pakistani capital, Mr. Dentkash said the Turkish community on Cyprus might be forced to declare complete independence if the Archbishop continued his attempts to internationalise the issue. He was "shutting his eyes to the reality of two distinct regions" on the island, he said. He said Archbishop Makarios's real intention was to join the island to Greece.

    Mr Denktash arrived by road from Afghanistan. He will also visit Bangladesh and India.

    While Rawalpindi, Mr. Denktash met Pakistani Prime Minister Zulfikar Ali Bhutto at his residence.
