Qa-64, 8 July 2020, Statement Of The Spokesperson Of The Ministry Of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Hami Aksoy, In Response To A Question Regarding The Us Decision To Provide Imet To The Greek Cypriot Administration

Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 08.07.2020

The US has announced that it will provide International Military Education and Training (IMET) to the Greek Cypriot Administration in accordance with the 2020 fiscal year appropriations act.

We support the position of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus authorities on this issue.

We would like to remind our ally, the US, that equal treatment of both sides on the Island is a basic UN principle.

As we have repeatedly emphasized before, this and similar steps do not contribute to the efforts towards the settlement of the Cyprus issue, but on the contrary, lead to strengthening the intransigent attitude of the Greek Cypriot side.

It is obvious that steps disregarding the balance between the two sides will not help create an atmosphere of trust on the Island, and ensure peace and stability in the Eastern Mediterranean.
