Dreams and policies of Greek politicians about Cyprus will not change

Prime Minister Ersin Tatar stated that it was proved once more that the dreams and wrong policies of Greek politicians regarding Cyprus will not change.

Tatar evaluated the statement of Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mytsotakis following his first official visit to South Cyprus. Tatar said that Mytsotakis ignored the historical facts when he demanded the end of the Turkish invasion as the highest strategic demand of Greek foreign policy.

“Kyriakos Mytsotakis tries to deny the fact that Turkey came to Cyprus upon a call from the Turkish Cypriot people as a result of the bloody coup organized by Greece with the aim of turning Cyprus into an Hellenic island and for the safety of life and property of the Turkish Cypriot people, using its guarantor rights” Tatar said.

Tatar added that Mytsotakis should not forget that his father, the former Greek Prime Minister Konstantin Mytsotakis, who escaped from the junta regime, could only return to Greece after the fall of the Junta regime as a result of Turkey’s intervention in Cyprus.

Furthermore, referring to the claim of the Greek Prime Minister that the solution of the Cyprus problem was meaningless without the lifting of the outdated guarantees, Tatar said “Contrary to Mytsotakis, the majority of the Turkish Cypriot people consider that the active and effective guarantee of Turkey is our only guarantee. We do not trust any other system. Therefore, the desire of Greece to take Turkey out of Cyprus is not only evil-minded but also does not coincide with the expectations of the Turkish Cypriot people”.

Tatar further stressed “Greece and the Greek Cypriot side who tried to threaten Turkey for its drilling activities in the Eastern Mediterranean and hint at using force if necessary and call on EU to help should know that they cannot prevent the TRNC and Turkey from protecting their rights in the Eastern Mediterranean”.

  1. I do not think this will ever change until the people themselves come together and join hands. I am so glad the British Army is well out of it as they were a punching bag for the Greeks during the 50’s with their hands tied behind their backs

  2. We must no ignore the presence and the influence of the Orthodox Church in both countries. No politician who has any ambition can even suggest anything that the church may not approve. For tat and many other reasons we must be proactive to decide for what is good for us now and for the future of our descendants and work towards that future. I am in the opinion that only we and Turkey is interested in what happens to us. So let us not put any hope that any other will go out of their ways to help us. We must cary on the hard way, the future can be far brighter than it already is.
