Qa-54, 5 October 2017, Statement Of The Spokesperson Of The Ministry Of Foreign Affairs, Ambassador Hüseyin Müftüoğlu, In Response To A Question Regarding The Letter Sent To The Un Secretary-general By The New York Representative Of The Greek Cypriot Administration

Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 05.10.2017

The letter sent on 3 October by the representative of the Greek Cypriot Administration in New York to the UN Secretary-General has been distributed as a UN Security Council document with the number S/2017/831.

Turkey’s position regarding said administration, and the fact that we do not recognize it, is well known. Therefore the abovementioned letter is devoid of value or meaning as far as Turkey is concerned. Within this framework, there is no question of even taking the baseless allegations in the letter into account.

As for the views expressed in the letter concerning the Island, the necessary reply will be given by the authorities of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, who are the true and only interlocutors of the Greek Cypriot Administration.
