On June 20, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan will go to the Occupied Territories of Cyprus in order to announce, as he stated, “an essential message” to the whole world.
What is it?
Erdoğan curses Austria and starts a new “vendetta” with U.S. President Joe Biden, as, according to the Turkish president, his American counterpart has “bloody hands” in Palestine.
On the other hand, the “only protector” of the Palestinians, the “supreme leader of the Muslims,” is going to send “an essential message” to Turkish-speaking Cypriots on June 20, during his visit to Occupied Cyprus.
The message will be addressed “to the whole world”!
“Do not be surprised if you soon receive good news about gas and oil fields in the Eastern Mediterranean,” Erdoğan said.
Analysts link the statement to energy deposits found in the Cypriot Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) and the plan to create a maritime border with Palestine at the expense of Cypriot maritime space, something denied by the Palestinian ambassador to Greece.
“What is happening is that, having distanced himself from the West, Erdogan wants to emerge as a leader of the Muslim world,” a diplomatic source told Sputnik Hellas.
“Since 2009-2010, he has taken positions in favor of Gaza and the Palestinians,” the source said, adding: “Let us not forget that the ship to Gaza started from Istanbul.”
“So don’t expect him to announce anything serious from the Occupied Territories,” the source estimated.
“Curses may erupt,” the source concluded.
However, this view is also shared by influential Turkish academic İlhan Uzgel..
“The Palestine is a great theme to the Turkish president to boost declining public support,” he said.
“What he is seeking at the moment is to strengthen his profile regionally by presenting himself as the only Muslim leader to support the Palestinian cause,” he continued, adding: “But I do not think that will work.”
If he is going to announce something “resounding,” “it may be a leak in the Turkish media, namely the declaration of the Gaza EEZ with Turkey.”
