No: 333, 17 November 2019, Press Release Regarding The Burning Of The Turkish Republic Of Northern Cyprus Flag In The Greek Cypriot Side

Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 17.11.2019

We condemn the burning of the TRNC flag on the 36th anniversary of its establishment in the Greek Cypriot side and we give full support to TRNC authorities’ statements regarding this incident.

The fact that the Greek Cypriots have neither made any statement condemning this act of hatred nor have investigated the perpetrators, demonstrates that this act has official support behind.

We believe that the Greek Cypriot Administration, as well as the Greek authorities, with their statements provoking hatred towards the Turkish Cypriots, have a responsibility in this incident.

Under these circumstances, we expect the international community to invite the Greek Cypriot side and Greece, to avoid rhetorics further deteriorating the atmosphere of tension on the Island, as pointed in the latest report of the UN Secretary General.
