Oktay: “We do not have the chance and luxury to leave Cyprus alone”

Vice President of Republic of Turkey, Fuat Oktay stated that they have been following the Cyprus issue closely and they do not have the chance and luxury to leave Cyprus alone on any issue. “The problems in Cyprus are our problems. Our coordination and joint work will continue” Oktay added.

Pointing out that they have been following developments in and around Cyprus, Oktay said: “We follow unilateral activities of the Greek Cypriot side which we can express as being “fait accompli” in the international arena concerning the extraction of hydrocarbon resources.  I would like to express once again that we will not allow any fait accompli. Our seismic research is continuing in the area.

There are some areas in which the TRNC has a right to work with Turkey. An uncertainty has tried to be created in those areas. This will not be tolerated. Both Fatih and Barbaros are currently conducting their work in the Mediterranean. We’re now following Cyprus closely, we have no chance or luxury to leave Cyprus alone on any issue. The problems in Cyprus are our problems. Both coordination and joint work will continue”.
