He claims that “this situation is incompatible with common sense and good will and shows that the Council, instead of promoting a real solution on the island, failed to escape the guidance of the Greek Cypriot side”.
The Turkish Foreign Ministry also claims that “the UN Security Council has once again ignored the inhumane and illegal embargoes imposed on the Turkish Cypriot people”. , “another contradiction in the resolution is the call for cooperation between the two sides, ignoring the realistic, constructive and sincere proposals for cooperation that the president of the TDPK, Ersin Tatar, conveyed to the UN Secretary General in letters dated July 1 and 8, 2022.”< /p>

The Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs calls on the UN Security Council “to stop supporting the insincere attitude of the Greek Cypriot administration, which is trying to prevent Greek Cypriots who want to return to their properties”, while claiming that “on this occasion, we would like to let's emphasize once again that Varosia is territory of the tdvk”.
