Prime Minister Tatar reacted to a joint declaration adopted by Egypt, Greece, France, Greek Cypriot Administration and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and said ‘some countries are trying to advance their hidden plans to usurp the rights of Turkey and the Turkish Cypriot people in the Eastern Mediterranean.’
Tatar stated that the joint declaration indicates the sinister plan as France and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) have nothing to do with the Eastern Mediterranean but have united with Greece, Greek Cypriot Administration and Egypt against the rights of Turkey and TRNC.
Prime Minister Tatar mentioned: ‘Those countries which criticised Turkey’s drilling activities in the Eastern Mediterranean is far from the realistic and cooperative approach and also this benefits neither them nor the region. What is needed is cooperation and not ignoring the rights of Turkey and the Turkish Cypriot people in the region. Greece and Greek Cypriot Administration must establish dialogue with Turkey and the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus’
Tatar pointed out that Turkish Cypriots have as much rights as the Greek Cypriots in the Eastern Mediterranean and said ‘neither Turkey nor the Turkish Cypriot people will remain silent over attempts to ignore these rights’
