Mitsotakis' statement about Cyprus bothered the Turks


The post of Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis on the 47th sad anniversary of the Turkish invasion of Cyprus, bothers the Turks.

"Forty-seven years since the Turkish invasion of Cyprus. Time flies, but no one forgets," the prime minister said in a social media message, posting the map of Cyprus with the northern part bloodied.

Turkish media, calling the 1974 invasion of northern Cyprus as a "Peace Operation", reported that the Greek Prime Minister published a map of Cyprus covered in blood, while calling the Turks as "invaders."

"Like every year, Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis shared a controversial announcement on the 47th anniversary of the Operation, calling Turks as 'invaders' in Cyprus," commented Turkish outlet Enson Haber.

"Before now, the Greek Cypriot side tried to exclude and to isolate the Turkish Cypriots from state institutions, to end their existence on the island and to open the way for union with Greece," the article claimed.

"Turkey, with the Operation it organised, destroyed the plans of the Greek Cypriot side and Greece," the article added.
