Turkey's Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu has discussed by phone developments in the Cyprus issue, Ukraine and Syria with United Nations Secretary General Ban-Ki Moon. The conversation on Thursday came three days after Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus President Dervis Eroglu said that peace talks with “sacrifices on the Turkish side only” would only impede an agreement on the Cyprus issue. 

Eroglu spoke after meeting UN General-Secretary Ban Ki-moon in New York to discuss latest developments in UN-sponsored negotiations over the island’s future. “A resumption of negotiations with the sacrifices of Turkish side only is worrisome and poses difficulty in reaching an agreement,” Eroglu told reporters.

Meanwhile, Davutoglu also held a phone conversation with Yusuf bin Alawi bin Abdullah, Oman's Minister of Foreign Affairs, about the two country's relations.
