TRNC President Ersin Tatar addressed the Extraordinary Summit of the OTS and called for concrete steps against the isolations imposed on the Turkish Cypriot people.
President Tatar, who participated in the summit on the invitation of the Republic of Türkiye Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, attended the Heads of State Meeting held in Ankara at the Presidential Complex within the scope of the Extraordinary Summit of the Organisation of Turkic States held under the theme of “Disaster-Emergency Management and Humanitarian Aid”.
The Extraordinary Summit of the Organisation of Turkic States, of which the TRNC is an observer member, was held upon the request of the Republic of Azerbaijan.
The Summit was attended by the President of the Republic of Türkiye Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, President of Azerbaijan İlham Aliyev, President of Kazakhstan Kasım Cömert Tokayev, President of Kyrgyzstan Sadir Caparov, President of the Republic of Uzbekistan Shevket Mirziyoyev, President of the TRNC Ersin Tatar, Prime Minister of Hungary Viktor Orban and the National Leader of the Turkmen People and the Chairman of the People’s Council of Turkmenistan Gurbangulu Berdimuhamedov.
Expressing his belief that the Turkic world will establish a “closer relationship through cooperation in the field of disaster and emergency management”, President Tatar pointed out that the TRNC is excluded from similar humanitarian initiatives under the umbrella of the United Nations and the European Union due to unfounded political claims. He emphasised that he is honoured to be representing the TRNC at the Organisation of Turkic States.
