Qa-46, 12 June 2020, Statement Of The Spokesperson Of The Ministry Of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Hami Aksoy In Response To A Question Regarding The Enforcement Of The Regulation On The British Sovereign Bases.

Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 12.06.2020

The regulation regarding the use of privately owned property within the British Sovereign Bases, which was signed between the Greek Cypriot Administration and the United Kingdom in 2014, has entered into force.

As we mentioned at the time of signing of this agreement, it is unacceptable that Turkey as a guarantor and the Turkish Cypriot side that signed the 1960 Treaties were not consulted timely on the content of this regulation, which entails a change of status in the base areas.

Within this framework, we support the statements of the TRNC authorities on this matter.

In these areas, not only Greek Cypriots but also Turkish Cypriots have immovable properties, as well as indispensable rights and interests.

The United Kingdom, who is a guarantor, has ignored the Turkish Cypriots once again with the implementation of this regulation and damaged the balance between the parties on the Island, the principle of political equality and therefore efforts towards the settlement of the Cyprus issue.
