Turkish officials have accused the Republic of Cyprus of giving permission to open an office to the Syrian Kurds (PYD), whom they link directly to the PKK.
Turkish Vice President Fuat Oktay tweeted that “the mentality that killed a baby in southern Cyprus yesterday, the infant killer is opening an office for terrorists today.” terrorism, talking about peace on the island is a sign of its insincerity. “Those who play with fire will sooner or later burn their hands.”
For his part, the Vice President of the ruling AKP party, Numan Kourtoulmous, in his speech at the Cekmekioi in Istanbul, stated that “the e / k administration of southern Cyprus should not try to do things too big for its size. “Terrorist organizations will hit those who support these organizations like a boomerang in the end.”
He added that “we know that the signing of the Greek Cypriot administration in such a foolish decision will harm all peace efforts in the region. While we are trying to overcome through negotiations some tensions that we went through especially with Greece in the Aegean and the eastern Mediterranean, we recommend the Greek Cypriot administration to know its limits. We would like to emphasize that this wrong practice that they have done will hurt themselves more “.
The representative of the ruling AKP party, Omer Celik, also claims through his Twitter account that “the e / k administration of southern Cyprus has taken a pro-terrorist stance by opening a representative office for the PKK / PYD terrorist organization. With this attitude, the Greek Cypriot administration has added a new illegality. The Republic of Turkey and the TRNC are determined to teach the necessary lesson to any kind of terrorist activity. The Turkish Cypriots have historical experience in dealing with assassination networks. The e / k administration wrote its name next to that of the terrorist organization with a network of murders “.
