Çavuşoğlu: “Turkish Cypriots exposed to inhumane embargoes and pressures”

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu attended the OIC Foreign Ministers Meeting organised in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

During the Summit, Minister Çavuşoğlu handed over the OIC Summit Presidency to Saudi Arabia which has been held by Turkey since 2016 and addressed the representatives of the member countries.

Mentioning the Cyprus problem, Çavuşoğlu stressed that the Turkish Cypriots who are represented within the OIC with a non-member observer status are still exposed to inhuman embargoes and pressures. The Turkish Muslim minorities residing in Western Thrace and Greece, as revealed in bilateral and multilateral reports, can still not exercise their rights and freedoms. Muslim communities and minorities residing in Western Europe, North America and in other countries other than the OIC countries, face serious violation and new difficulties.
