Turkey to make all out efforts for recognition of Turkish Cypriot state: Erdogan
July 22, 2021

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said his country will make all out efforts for the recognition of Turkish Cypriot state.

In a video address to members of the Justice and Development Party on Eid al-Adha, he said the Turkish Cypriots will not compromise on their independence and freedom.

Turkish President said this is the key to the solution.

Cyprus has been mired in a decades-long dispute between Greek and Turkish Cypriots, despite a series of diplomatic efforts by the UN to achieve a comprehensive settlement.
