Turkey determined to protect Turkish Cypriots' rights

Baku, June 8, AZERTAC

Turkey has stressed its commitment to protecting the rights of Turkish Cypriots in the Eastern Mediterranean after the Greek Cypriot administration said it had signed contracts with major energy industry players, Anadolu Agency reports.

“Greek Cypriots are in violation of the rights of Turkish Cypriots, who have an equal say on the natural resources of the island,” Foreign Ministry spokesman Hami Aksoy said in a statement.

Aksoy said the so-called contracts between the Greek Cypriot administration and global energy companies are unacceptable since they ignored the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus’ rightful share of offshore resources.
