Turkish Top Diplomat Says Cyprus Turkey's National Cause

Turkey to not have negotiations on Cyprus issue 'just for sake of it': Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu.

We will not have negotiations on Cyprus issue "just for the sake of it," Turkish foreign minister said on Monday.
"On Cyprus, which is a national cause to us, we will not have negotiations just for the sake of it," Mevlut Cavusoglu told the members of Turkish parliament's planning and budget committee.
Cavusoglu said Turkey had legitimate rights and benefits in the western and northern maritime zones of Cyprus.
"Our country has taken the necessary measures to protect them, and it will," said Cavusoglu.
"We will continue to protect both our rights and continental shelf and the rights of Turkish Cypriots for which we are guarantor," he added.
Turkey, as a guarantor nation for the Turkish Republic of North Cyprus (TRNC), is currently carrying out hydrocarbon exploration activities in the Eastern Mediterranean with two drilling vessels, Fatih and Yavuz, along with Oruc Reis and Barbaros Hayrettin Pasa seismic vessels in the same region.
Turkey has consistently contested the Greek Cypriot administration's unilateral drilling in the Eastern Mediterranean, asserting that the TRNC also has rights to the resources in the area.
The Turkish minister called for an end to the recent protests in Iran.
"We hope the recent events in Iran to be over and peace to be restored as soon as possible," he said.
Cavusoglu noted that Turkey has always been against sanctions on Iran.
Protests broke out across Iran since Friday after the government imposed petrol rationing and raised gasoline prices. -
