Tatar President Ersin met with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and world leaders at the opening ceremony of the Islamic Solidarity Games in Konya, Yenidzen reported.

The attendance of the Tatars at the opening has been controversial as Turkish Cypriot sportsmen/women were not invited to participate in the games.

In another article, Yeniduzen The President of the Cyprus Turkish Football Federation (KTFF), Hasan Sertor, reportedly said: “Stop hiding behind the flag and Turkey every time you get into trouble. Your efforts to make me an enemy of Turkey are also in vain. Those who know me know this.”

Sertor’s statement is as follows:

“I heard what President Ersin Tatar said. I thought again that Mr. Tatar would be hurt if he heard the truth, but this is the fact that Turkish Cypriots exist.

“First of all, as the Tatar said in his statement, we did not want to patch the Greek Cypriots.On the contrary, as KTFF, our rights taken away by the Greeks We got death threats, took to the streets with police guards, our Federation was set on fire, but as KTFF we fought on every platform.

“… As usual, Mr. Tatar showed a reflex of self-defense upon hearing the truth, once again ignoring the inhumane embargo experienced by the Turkic-Cypriot youth and ignoring his people. “
