Because the game is to get Cyprus completely into the European Union. In the context of the Federal Republic of Cyprus, in the European Union with its north and south, to separate us from Turkey. No one has the power to sever our ties with Turkey. Our ties to the Republic of Turkey are equivalent to our historical unity of heart. Since 1571, the bonds of spirituality and unity of heart between us and the national effervescence have brought us closer together, ” he said.
