Date Added: 21 January 2022

The Deputy Chairman of Turkey’s Justice and Development Party Numan Kurtulmuş on Friday expressed his anger over the decision by the Greek Cypriot administration to allow the opening of an office belonging to the YPG/PKK terrorist organization in South Cyprus.

Speaking at a party meeting, Kurtulmuş said that such a move hurt efforts to achieve peace in the region.

“The Greek Cypriot administration should not bite more than it can chew. The support given to such terrorist organisations always has a boomerang effect. We all know how the support given to such organisations by Western countries later caused trouble for Turkey,” he said.

Kurtulmuş urged the Greek Cypriot side to know its place particularly at a time when Turkey was attempting to solve problems in the Aegean and the Eastern Mediterranean through talks and dialogue.
