Erdogan: Attitude towards Turkish Cyprus does not comply with int'l law

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Friday that the attitude towards the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC) did not comply with the international law.

Premier Erdogan addressed formal opening of the 4th Plenary Session of the Mediterranean Parliamentary Assembly in Istanbul.

Turkey attached a great importance and extend full support to the ongoing negotiation process on the Cyprus issue for regional stability, Erdogan said.

In regard to Turkey's EU accession process, Erdogan said that if Turkey became a full member of the EU, the Union would also benefit from it. "Turkey's accession means that 1.5 billion Muslims will strengthen the EU," he added.
