Turkish Cypriots will no longer sit at the table just to negotiate

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu addressed the Ambassadors, from overseas countries and the central organisation in Turkey at the 12th Ambassadors’ Conference held at the Presidential Complex.

Stressing that Cyprus is the national case of Turkey, Çavuşoğlu said: “It is obvious who blocked the solution process on the Cyprus issue. There is a problematic mentality which does not see the Turkish Cypriot people equal with the other side on the island”. Çavuşoğlu also added that the European Union (EU) made those with this mentality an EU member and blocked the hope for a solution.

Indicating that the EU is now supporting the attempts to “seize” the commonwealth, Çavuşoğlu indicated that they will not allow this.

Stating that the issue in the Eastern Mediterranean is the “equitable sharing of resources”, Çavuşoğlu said: “Those who created instability in the region are those who feel they can usurp the Turkish people’s rights. Nobody should expect that Turkey, as the country with the longest coastline in the Eastern Mediterranean, will give up her rights and accept to be imprisoned in its own shores. Initiatives that exclude us or even oppose us have no chance of success.”

  1. …based on its merits, on what basis is this “Turkish” regime equal to the Republic?

    I am waiting for Mr. Tatar to suggest that the EU should open membership, to him, as well.

    …and there are still the resolutions, quite clear, from the UN, and from the World itself: a Cyprus exists.

    …so too Cypriots, let’s not forget.

    If Tatar does not fight for Turkish people, but, for “Turkishness”, he will not find his adversary among the few, as Turkish Cypriots are seen, but the many, once Greeks and Turks who are Cypriot realise, what is “the change in mentality” that is needed; that while “Greeks” and “Turks” may exist, they are the same, and no different. Such as it is for Cypriots, Turkish and Greek, they too are the same, as equals no different.

    Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu may reconsider his position on Cypriots, as a Guarantor to this State, and to a Future where Turks, those not “Turkish”, can see in the Turkish Republic equality, respect for minorities, and beyond Freedom, in Liberty, their existence as Turkish Constituencies as well.
