North Cyprus promise to fight illegal migration

The Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus has reiterated its proposal to the Greek Cypriot administration for cooperation in the fight against irregular migrants.

In a written statement issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs it stated that irregular migration is becoming increasingly complex as communication and transportation have globalized and the repercussions of poverty, economic and or political instability in some countries have global effects.

“The problems resulting by this phenomenon, namely “irregular migration”, are beyond the means of a single country to overcome.

Therefore, the prevention of irregular migration requires the international community to exert joint effort with the sense of responsibility and solidarity” the statement noted.

Stating that Cyprus is not immune to irregular migration, the statement noted that both the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus and the Greek Cypriot Administration of South Cyprus receive irregular immigration from various countries.

“Contrary to the Greek Cypriot side, our country is devoid of international assistance and struggling with irregular migration only with the support of Motherland Turkey. We believe that the issue of irregular migration should be addressed within the spirit of cooperation” the statement continued to note.

“Our State has announced on every occasion that it favours cooperation with the Greek Cypriot side in matters concerning our Island.

It is worth reminding that our offer to establish cooperation with the Greek Cypriot side on irregular migration remains to be on the table.

We would like to take this opportunity to renew, once again, our proposal for cooperation on “irregular migration”, which poses a significant challenge to all of us” the statement concluded.
