Turkey threatens Cyprus over hypothetical Kurdish actions

The Greek Cypriot administration will pay for any attacks perpetrated by the YPG against the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC) and Turkey, Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu said Thursday.

“Permitting terrorist organizations to open offices equals playing with fire,” the foreign minister told reporters in a joint news conference with his Estonian counterpart Eva-Maria Liimets. He added that Turkey will make the Greek Cypriot administration pay a heavy price if the PKK-linked terrorists carry out any attacks against Turkish Cypriots or Turkey.

“If there is any threat…we will make them pay the price. This will be a heavy price, so they should not play with fire.”


“We know the Greek Cypriot administration’s support for terrorist groups, including the PKK. This is not a secret,” Çavuşoğlu said, adding that they would have to pay a heavy price in case of a terrorist attack.
