No: 121, 26 March 2021, Press Release Regarding the Attack Against a Mosque in the Episkopi Village of Limassol, South Cyprus

Republic Of Türkiye Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 26.03.2021

We condemn the attack carried out yesterday (25 March) against a mosque in the village of Episkopi, in Limassol, Greek Cypriot Administration of Southern Cyprus.

It is obvious that such provocative actions will not help build trust between the two peoples at a time when efforts towards reaching a settlement to the Cyprus issue have intensified.

We agree with H.E. Ersin Tatar, President of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus in his call to bring those responsible for the incident to the justice as soon as possible. We expect that the issue will be pursued with the necessary seriousness and sensitivity with a view to avoiding repetition of such unacceptable acts.
