Turkey has never left us alone

Üstel attended the reception organized by the TRNC Consulate General in Istanbul on the occasion of the 39th anniversary of the TRNC.

Referring to the history of the Turkish presence in Cyprus, Üstel said, “The adventure that started in 1571 continued in the 1900s, it became active in the 1950s, we lived through the 1960s, then we saw their ingratitude. The adventure that started since 1963, thanks to the Republic of Turkey, our homeland 1974. We got our freedom with our Peace Operation.” said.


Stating that they gradually started to form the facts of being a state after gaining their freedom, they first established an autonomous administration and formed the federal structure, Üstel continued as follows:

“Finally, we left behind the processes experienced with the 1974 Peace Operation together with Dr. Fazıl Küçük, who led us in this struggle after the struggles, and Rauf Denktaş, who took the flag and continued after him, and his friends. Now, we started to breathe freely like the people of the world. “We had only one homeland, Turkey. They cannot break these ties even if they wanted to. Our strong ties from history, one of which is our offspring and the other our homeland. We are connected to each other by these ties, today we are celebrating our 39th anniversary.”


Expressing that they do not have the patience to wait for 39 more years, Prime Minister Üstel reminded that the TRNC was exposed to embargoes during the long-standing talks with the Greek Cypriot side.

Emphasizing that the Turkish Cypriot people are being oppressed with isolation, Ünal Üstel said:

“There is something they forgot. We have our homeland. We had our armed forces. They never left us alone. All the lands of the TRNC were watered with the blood of the Mehmetçik and mujahideen. I wish God’s mercy on our martyrs who we have given to us until today. I wish our veterans who are alive long life. “Our goal in the next period will always be to go further with our homeland. President of Turkey, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, made a historic speech at the United Nations, addressing the world. The spoiled children of Europe and the EU began to receive adverse responses. After the embargoes that these communities have imposed on us until today.” They are the last to speak. But they speak. We still continue on our way with our homeland Turkey. Observer membership was accepted in the Organization of Turkish States so that the world could recognize the TRNC. Our flag was hoisted there. Again, the EU and the USA did not leave a word. While saying that, the people living in the TRNC have been under embargo for so long. They didn’t think it was a. In the next period, I believe that in 2023, our state will take the place it deserves in the world.”


Istanbul Governor Ali Yerlikaya stated that Cyprus is the name of peace, freedom and struggle and said, “Cyprus is the name of the prayer in the last breath of our soldiers and mujahideen. Therefore, our excitement continues to increase as it was the first day it was founded 39 years ago. Because Cyprus has been around since 1571. “It is our homeland, our name and our island. Like our Anatolia, like our Rumelia, it is the land of our homeland, every inch of which is watered with the blood of our martyrs. It is the Turkish Republic. Cyprus is in our hearts as high as the Taurus Mountains, as wide as the Mediterranean, as sacred as our star and crescent.” he said.

The 1st Army and Istanbul Garrison Commander General Ali Sivri, TRNC Istanbul Consul General Seniha Birand Çınar, Beyoğlu Mayor Haydar Ali Yıldız, Istanbul Police Chief Zafer Aktaş, Turkish Jews Chief Rabbi Isak Haleva, ITO President Shekib Avdagic and guests attended the reception.
