Tatar: “The decision taken on Cyprus was unreasonable, totally in favour of the Greek Cypriot side”
Prime Minister Ersin Tatar pointed out at the Summit Declaration of Southern European Countries that the decision taken on Cyprus was unreasonable, totally in favour of the Greek Cypriot side, and emphasized that it is clear that those who did this, do not want a compromise in Cyprus.
Tatar made a written statement regarding this issue and stated that nobody can stop the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus and Turkey from protecting their rights with threatening statements, adding that those who imagine this, will not get a result.
“The European Union countries once again proved that they cannot be fair and impartial on the Cyprus issue and with their decision taken on the Cyprus issue, the Turkish Cypriot people should not trust them for their security and protection of their rights.
Those who dare to threaten Turkey despite the International Law, should know that by putting forward a stance in favour of the Greek Cypriot side it is not possible to contribute to a just, lasting, viable, fact-based compromise in Cyprus.
There are Turkish Cypriot people in Cyprus as well as the Greek Cypriot people. The Turkish Cypriots have equal rights with the Greek Cypriots.
The Turkish Cypriot side claiming rights in the Eastern Mediterranean is as right and natural as the Greek Cypriot side’s claims.
Those who cannot understand this fact and cannot put the Greek Cypriots on the right path cannot contribute to the solution of the Cyprus problem.
If the EU countries really want a solution in Cyprus, then they should not ignore the existing facts, law, our rights and opinions.”
