  • [01] CYPRUS UN TURKEY LETTER

    Cyprus stands solid and firm on its positions of principle and will not be intimidated by Turkeys long-standing gunboat policy, which belongs to another era.

    The position is outlined in a letter dated 6 August from the Charge d affaires of the Permanent Mission of Cyprus to the UN, Andreas Hadjichrysanthou to the UN Secretary General, in response to a letter dated 23 July by Turkeys Permanent Representative, which was circulated as a UN document. In the letter, Turkey questioned Cyprus right to explore and exploit its natural resources located in its exclusive economic zone and threatened to proceed with new fait accomplish and threats of further use of force.

    Noting that the content of the Turkish letter does not come as a surprise, its inexcusable assertions compel my Government to respond as a matter of principle, Hadjichrysanthou said it seems that the mere existence of the Republic of Cyprus is considered by Turkey as an obstacle to the latters pursuit of its geostrategic interests, as Turkey itself defines them, and an obstruction to the variable geometry of what it conceives as its rights in the Eastern Mediterranean.
