No: 295, 10 October 2019, Press Release Regarding The Press Statement Of The Un Security Council On Cyprus

Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 10.10.2019

The United Nations Security Council held closed consultations on Maraş (“Varosha”), which is a part of the territory of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC), on 9 October 2019.

As there is no threat to international peace and security in Maraş, we consider the Council’s consultations, requested unnecessarily by the Greek Cypriot side, as well as the press statement released thereafter, as an abuse of the mandate of the UN Security Council.

Turkey fully supports the statement released today by the Deputy Prime Ministry and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the TRNC regarding this issue.
