    How the president commented on the provocative statements of the Turkish Foreign Minister

    President Christodoulidis was asked to comment on the statements of the Turkos Minister of Foreign Affairs, Hakan Fidan, which presents Cyprus as a “hub of operations” in relation to the war in Gaza. “I want to tell the Turkish Foreign Minister that Cyprus is a center of operations: center of humanitarian operations, humanitarian aid is sent supported by the international community. It is a center of operations for the evacuation of the civilian population from the area, as we have done many times, we have done it recently,” he said.

    He added that he understands the difficulty of the Turkish Foreign Minister that the role of the Republic of Cyprus is recognized at the international level, and he attempts through such statements to involve Cyprus in the controversy. “Whatever he does, everyone knows our role: Sending humanitarian aid, evacuating populations,” he said.

    He noted that it is “a bit unfortunate” to hear from the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Turkey, “that we all know very well what is happening in Turkey in relation to all these issues. So I understand the difficult position he is in, precisely because of the recognition of the role of the Republic of Cyprus”.

    The President repeated that “we are not involved. We are part of the solution, not the problem, not with words, but with actions.”

    He noted that he is not going to engage in such a dialogue. “That's where they want to take the conversation. We take everything very seriously, we do not downplay anything, but I am not going to get involved in a public discussion that aims to serve the narrative of the Turkish Foreign Minister”, he emphasized.
