The Prime Minister of the Republic of Northern Cyprus, Faiz Sucuoğlu, said that Baku’s diplomatic steps are very important because the two countries share the same roots, religion and speak the same language.
The Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC) says it expects Azerbaijan to officially approve the Mediterranean country, calling it an “important step”.
“Our expectation, especially as brothers, is that Azerbaijan, where we come from the same roots, speak the same language and share the same religion, will recognize the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus as an important step.” Said. TRNC’s Faiz Scuoglu told Anadolu Agency on Thursday.
Sucuoglu said there would be no federal solution to the on-and-off peace process on Cyprus.
“From now on, there are two sovereign and equal state positions (of the island),” he said.
“There is the upright attitude of President Ersin Tatar and the incredible support of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on this issue.”
Cyprus has been plagued by decades of controversy between Greece’s Cyprus and Turkey’s Cyprus, despite a series of diplomatic efforts to achieve a comprehensive reconciliation.
In 1974, the Greek Cypriot coup aimed at the merger of Greek islands led to the military intervention of Turkish Cyprus as a guarantee to protect Turkish Cypriots from persecution and violence. As a result, TRNC was founded in 1983.
In recent years, the peace process has been intermittent, including the failed 2017 initiative in Switzerland with the support of guarantors Turkey, Greece and the United Kingdom.
Skuoguru said President Erdogan’s aggressive policies reassured Turkey’s Cyprus.
“They know that if you slap, you’ll be beaten. This is the homeland way. [Turkiye] Protect us Therefore, we are very pleased with this direction at TRNC. Because we know that there is a huge power of 84 million behind us. [Turkish people],” He said.
Eastern Mediterranean claims
Sucuoglu also pointed out the importance of energy resources in the Eastern Mediterranean.
“Cyprus is an unsinkable aircraft carrier. It is the one who controls the Middle East and North Africa. It has TRNC and its homeland. Turkey’s Cyprus will continue to fight in this direction until the end,” he said. I added.
Turkiye, which has the longest continental coastline on the eastern Mediterranean, rejected claims on the maritime boundaries of the Greek and Greek Cypriot regimes, and excessive claims violated the sovereignty of both Turkiye and Turkish Cypriots. I emphasized that there is.
Turkish leaders have repeatedly emphasized that Ankara is in favor of resolving all open issues in the region, including maritime disputes, through international law, good neighbor relations, dialogue and negotiations. rice field.
