TRNC President Tatar: we are not going to bow to the hegemonic stance of the Greek side

President Tatar said in a written statement that Greek leader Anastasiadis made a meeting with EU Foreign Relations and Security Policy High Representative Josep Borrell in Brussels, “Turkey should stop natural gas operations in the Eastern Mediterranean, the Turkish side should end the Maraş initiative, and Turkey should abandon its two-state solution proposal. ” reminded that he put forward the terms.

Stating that Anastasiadis announced that if these conditions are not accepted, he will veto the EU Summit in June, where EU-Turkey relations will be discussed.

“While these conditions put forward by Anastasidis include threats and blackmail against the EU, Turkey and the TRNC, it is never possible for us to accept these conditions. We are not going to submit to the hegemonic attitude of the Greek side. We will not give up our solution proposal based on two sovereign equal states that we put on the table in. With the Maraş initiative, natural gas studies in the Eastern Mediterranean will continue.


Tatar said that the main reasons for the Greek side’s being so daring, resorting to blackmail and making threats are the fact that the Greek side of the EU has unfairly and unilaterally accepted the membership for political reasons and has a pro-Greek stance on Cyprus. He emphasized that this attitude of the EU serves a deadlock.

Tatar stated that the EU, which has lost its neutrality on Cyprus, pressures Turkey with the Greek-Greek duo to “If you want to become a member of the EU, the Cyprus issue should be resolved as we want”, and that this is used as a threat, but while the same EU, the Greek Cypriot Administration and Greece are taking membership. He reminded that he is not looking at whether the Cyprus issue is resolved or not.

Tatar said, “It would be useful to remind the EU’s promises during the Annan Plan referendum held in 2004. The EU promised that if the Turkish Cypriots said yes in the referendum, the Cyprus issue will not be put in front of Turkey once again in its negotiations with the EU. The EU, along with its other promises, did not fulfill this promise. While the Cyprus issue is still put as an obstacle to Turkey, unacceptable conditions are being put forward. ” used the expressions.


Tatar stated that the Turkish Cypriot people were forced to patch up the Republic of Cyprus, which was transformed into the Greek state, and to become a minority of the Greeks, and that it was not possible to accept them, and that they would continue to walk on the path they determined with Turkey.

Tatar noted the following:

“While Southern Cyprus and Greece, which are EU members, impose on the Cyprus issue on the Cyprus issue by using the EU with threats and blackmail, we will also monitor how the EU will take a stance against the conditions put forward by the Greek Cypriot leader Nikos Anastasiadis. The EU should react to the conditions of the Greek side, abandon its pro-Greek stance and be just. “
