Tatar: “EU and Greek Cypriot side should have paid attention to the constructive proposal of the Turkish Cypriot side” 1

Prime Minister Ersin Tatar responded to the EU Council’s decision to impose economic and political sanctions on Turkey over its drilling activities in the Eastern Mediterranean in a written statement and said ‘The EU should have taken into consideration the proposals put forward by the representatives of the Turkish Cypriot people rather than taking these decisions against Turkey’.

Prime Minister Tatar pointed out that the EU Council’s decision ignored the political will of the Turkish Cypriot people and the European Council has added another new biased decision in favor of the Greek Cypriot side.

Furthermore Tatar underlined that the decision had only contributed to the Greek Cypriot side’s aim of benefitting from the status quo and said ‘the EU may ignore the will of the Turkish Cypriots and impose economic and political sanctions on Turkey over its drilling activities as much as they wish, however, the reality is that there are two sovereign people, states and democracies in the island and Turkey recognizes only the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus and Turkey has always stressed that the Greek Cypriot Administration is not its interlocutor.
