Turkey got angry over the energy deal signed among Greece, Cyrpus and Jordan. And had its mouthpiece, the occupied territories of Northern Cyprus slam the agreement as “unacceptable” claiming it “ignores the Turkish Cypriots’ essential rights.”
Of course, ever since the military invention on Cyprus by Turkish troops in July 1974, the occupied North of the island claims to be a ‘state’ although only Turkey has recognized it as such despite the repeated efforts of Ankara to have it internationally recognized.
“The Greek Cypriot administration’s signing of treaties together with Greece and Jordan on sectors like health, education, agriculture and mainly energy, in ignorance of Turkish Cypriots’ essential rights on the island where they are joint owners of it, is unacceptable,” the occupied North of Cyprus said in a written statement.
The statement said one-sided steps by Greek Cypriots will not be respected and that the occupied north “will not hesitate to take counter steps.”
“We would like to stress once more that we will rapidly continue consultations with Turkey about our future,” the statement said adding that the North “will not at all be bound by the agreements signed today.”
