Expressing his belief that their brothers who live in the TRNC will reach the peace and prosperity that they wish, Şentop said that Turkey will be supporting both the TRNC’s rights and the law in the Eastern Mediterranean and will be the followers of Turkey’s own rights stemming from the international law in the region.
