The delegation of the National Defence Commission of the Turkish Grand National Assembly headed by Hulusi Akar first paid a visit to the Speaker of the Republic’s Assembly Zorlu Töre.
Speaking during the visit, Töre said that the Cyprus issue is a common national cause with Türkiye.
“At this point, our case is not over because there is a ceasefire. The TRNC needs to develop economically and socially” said Töre.
During the visit paid to Prime Minister Ünal Üstel, the Premier said that Hulusi Akar’s visit to Cyprus is very important as he knows the region and the Greek Cypriot mentality very well.
Stating that the unchanging Greek Cypriot mentality is evident but they are unable to explain this to the world, Prime Minister Üstel said that the Greek Cypriots, are the spoiled children of the European Union and continue to blame the Turkish Cypriot side at every opportunity.
Foreign Minister Tahsin Ertuğruloğlu for his part pointed to the importance of unity and solidarity in the face of the challenges faced by the Turkish Cypriot people.
“We must maintain our unity and solidarity in the face of the threats faced by the Turkish Cypriot people and the Turkish nation. As a cause of the Turkish nation, we are at the point of waging this struggle. The more we cooperate, the more success we will achieve” said Ertuğruloğlu.
Hulusi Akar for his part said that their visit to the TRNC is important in terms of understanding the importance they attach to the country.
“As we all know, the Cyprus cause is Türkiye’s national cause. We have worked and are working for the welfare and survival of our brothers and sisters here. The most important issue is our unity and solidarity. The synchronized movement of the administration here and the administration in Türkiye is very important. There are serious hostilities against both Türkiye and the TRNC. The EU is still enforcing embargoes here. If we are united we can fight and overcome everything” said Akar.
