Turkish Defence Minister Hulusi Akar stated that Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus has rights and is the shareholder of the natural wealth around the island.
Akar also underlined that Turkey is following all the political and military developments and the studies on the TRNC, the Aegean and the Eastern Mediterranean are continuing and said ‘Any decision or agreement that Turkey is not involved in would not be valid or lasting and Turkey would not tolerate any fait accompli.
Turkey supports the TRNC as it always has done and will continue to do the same in the future. Everyone needs to understand well and act accordingly that people living in the TRNC need to receive a share from these resources, and they have rights over them.
