Cyprus Denounces Turkish Agreement with North Cypriot Regime

The Cypriot government deplored Wednesday the delimitation ''agreement'' signed today between Turkey and illegal Turkish Cypriot regime as ''another violation of the international law.''

''Turkey has committed another violation (of the international law), by signing an agreement with an illegal entity, such as the pseudo-state, which has been condemned by UN resolutions'', Government Spokesman Stephanos Stephanou said in a statement in New York.

''With this violation Turkey tries to obstruct the Republic of Cyprus from exercising a self-evident right, recognized by the whole of the international community,'' Stephanou added, noting that the international community requests Turkey to respect the international law.

''Unfortunately Turkey continues to violate the international law'', he concluded.

On November 15, 1983, the Turkish Cypriot regime, in the island’s northern Turkish occupied areas, declared a UDI, which the UN has described as “legally invalid” and called on all states “to respect the sovereignty, independence, territorial integrity and non-alignment of the Republic of Cyprus.”

The UN Security Council also called on all states “not to recognise any Cypriot state other than the Republic of Cyprus”. Barring Turkey, no other state recognises the illegal Turkish Cypriot regime.
