The United States first lifted the arms embargo on the Greek Cypriot side. Then he started mutual military trainings.
The US submarine in the region also anchored in Greek ports.
Not only that, the leader of the Greek Cypriot administration, Nikos Christodoulidis, visited the submarine.
“It will disrupt the environment of stability and peace”
Greek Cypriot defense minister Mihalis Yorgallas also announced that they will buy weapon systems from the USA.
This statement was met with a reaction in the TRNC.
The TRNC Ministry of Foreign Affairs warned that arming the Greek Cypriots would disrupt the atmosphere of stability and peace in the Island and the Eastern Mediterranean.
“The steps taken will be responded to with determination”
In the statement made by the Ministry, it was pointed out that the Greek Cypriots were systematically armed.
It was noted that the activities that may endanger the security of the Turkish Cypriot people will be met. “Motherland Turkey and the TRNC will act resolutely against threats to the Turkish Cypriot people and Turkey’s security,” the statement said.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs also emphasized that “history confirms our determination against threats to our security”.
The anchoring of the United States San Juan attack submarine in a Greek seaport was also strongly condemned.
