With the Turkish passport in hand, Ersin Tatar managed to make his long-awaited trip to Australia. He “baptized” his trip as an “official visit”, but what is recorded in the Turkish Cypriot media is that, so far, Tatar is making a tour of festivals and receptions.

The only meeting that had, during the first week of his visit to Australia, and to which he wanted to give a political/diplomatic character was the one with the federal MP, Dai Le.

The meeting, as presented by Tatar's office, took place during their joint presence at a festival held in Sydney. The announcement also states that issues related to “the development of economic and diplomatic relations between the two countries” were discussed. The announcement was accompanied by a photograph showing Tatar and Le sitting at a table without anything else to indicate that it was an “official meeting”, as portrayed by the occupation regime.

Beyond that, the reports in the Turkish Cypriot press (GTP source) record exactly what Tatar has done in Australia so far. According to “Cyprus”, Ersin Tatar visited the “Turkish House” (as the premises where the embassy of Turkey is located) of New South Wales, the Gallipoli Mosque of Oburn and the Turkish nursing home of Oburn are characterized. As revealed in the publication, an important role – in addition to the Turks and Turkish Cypriots – for the Tatar reception events is played by the Azeris living in Australia.

“Cyprus” also wrote that Ersin Tatar attended the reception given in his honor by the Turkish Ambassador in Sydney, Ufuk Gezer. The reception, which was held at the Turkish consular residence, was attended by prominent Turkish and Turkish Cypriot figures in Sydney.

Speaking at the dinner, Tatar said he is the first Turkish Cypriot leader in history to visit Australia at the invitation of Turkish Cypriot civic organizations to attend the 80th anniversary celebrations of “Turkish Cypriot culture and traditions in the country”. . He claimed that other Turkish Cypriot leaders also wanted to visit Australia, “however, they were confronted with the obstructionist policy of the Greek and Greek Cypriot side”.

Referring to the Cypriot he said as “the t/k 'people' have been working hard for a solution based on equality for more than half a century. However, the mentality of the Greek Cypriots, who see Cyprus as a Greek island, has been the biggest obstacle to a solution in Cyprus. The reason why negotiations have failed for more than half a century is because of the Greek Cypriot side's refusal to share power and prosperity with the Turkish Cypriot people.”

Ersin Tatar, mentioned in another publication of “Cyprus”, held the opening of the festival for the 80th anniversary of the first arrivals of Turkish Cypriots in Australia. At the festival, organized by the Turkish Cypriot United Platform (TCUP), the “Australian Turkish Cypriot Chamber of Commerce” (CATCYP), the “Australian Northern Cyprus Friendship Association (ANCFA)”, the “Northern Cyprus Turkish Association (NCTA)” and the Turkish Cypriots of Australia (TCOA), attended by the Ambassador of the Republic of Turkey to Australia Ufuk Gezer, the Australian Federal MP Dai Le, the MP for New South Wales Harisma Kaligiada, the Deputy Mayor of Liverpool Karres Rhodes and the president of the Australian Turkish Joint Association (ATMA), Omer Injekara.

Bayrak reported that the Turkish Cypriot leader met with representatives of the Union of Independent Industrialists and Entrepreneurs (MÜSİAD) and the World Turkish Business Council (DTİK) in Sydney. as well as with Turkish media representatives. Tatar met with MÜSİAD President Xakan Evcek, DTİK President Hasan Gedsturk, President of Turkish Media in Australia Yuksel Cifci, as well as members and representatives of the Turkish and Turkish Cypriot business community.
