Turkish Foreign Ministry: “Greek Cypriot Administration continues to abuse EU membership

Turkish Foreign Ministry stated that in the joint declaration adopted at the 5th Summit of the Southern European Union Countries, the commendation of the so-called efforts by the Greek Cypriots regarding the settlement process in Cyprus and the expression of support for their unilateral hydrocarbon activities in the Eastern Mediterranean clearly displays the continuation of the Greek Cypriot administration’s abuse of its EU membership.

In a written statement, it was emphasized that the joint declaration adopted at the 5th Summit of the Southern European Union Countries (Med7) on Tuesday, 29 January, 2019 with the participation of France, Italy, Spain, Malta, Portugal, Greece and the Greek Cypriot Administration was yet another example of some of the statements in the joint declaration of the unfair and unconstructive attitude maintained by certain EU members in the name of so-called union solidarity.

It is also stated in the joint declaration that Turkey continues to maintain its commitment to take the necessary steps and defend the rights and interests of the Turkish Cypriot people.

  1. Thank you CyprusScene for publishing the Turkish Foreign Ministry’s comments about the Greek Cypriots Administration’s continued abuse of its EU s membership but the EU should be criticized for allowing them to insult the whole World with their Continued Lies.

    One would think the EU is encouraging them for reasons known to themselves to make it more difficult than they have been doing since 2004 when they took unjustly the Half Greek Cyprus island in as EU member and promised the Turkish side all sorts of help by lifting all Embargoes until a Based on TRUTH SOLUTION to the 70 years ongoing problem could be found.

    Personally I don’t believe the UN or most certainly not the EU for wanting to find a solution, if they did they could come out and tell the TRUTH to the world in a clear language instead of using Diplomatic language that we or the ordinary public don’t understand.

    Best wishes
