President Eroglu yesterday addressed the crowd attended to celebrate the 37th anniversary of the liberation of Lefke village from the Greek Cypriot control during the second phase of the 1974 Peace Mission carried out by Turkey with its obligation given by the 1960 Treaty of Alliance and Guarantee.
He said, "There is another problem awaiting Cyprus unless a settlement is found to Cyprus issue consistent with the efforts are being made...It is evident that there are natural gas and petrol reserves off the shores of Cyprus. The Greek Cypriots are making some contacts thinking that they can utilize these resources as they wish. This is unacceptable."
Underlining that if there was no solution by July 2012 when Greek Cypriot administration assumes EU Term Presidency other difficulties would surface Eroglu said, "Motherland Turkey has made clear with its PM Recep Tayyip Erdogan that they would shelve its EU membership access if Greek Cypriot side becomes EU term president, that they could not accept Greek Cypriots as their interlocutor and that there were two states on the island and not one".
He said the statements should be taken seriously adding "Otherwise Turkey's EU membership and Cyprus peace talks will be seriously damaged from the developments".
