Israel joins the US, UK, and EU in condemning Turkish provocations in Cyprus

Israel said it fully supported Cyprus

“Israel is following with deep concern recent unilateral Turkish actions and statements regarding the status of Varosha. Israel reiterates its solidarity and full support for Cyprus,” Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Lior Haiat said in a Twitter post.

US Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Karen Donfried stressed that the moves by the Turkish Cypriots and Erdogan are provocative and an obstacle to any negotiation effort to resolve the Cyprus issue on the basis of a bi-zonal, bi-communal federation. She added that these moves are incompatible with UN Security Council resolutions.

EU High Representative Josep Borrell also expressed his deep concern over the announcements made by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Ersin Tatar about the fenced area in Varosha.

British Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said London was “deeply concerned” by Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan’s announcement of the declassification of part of the Varosha enclave, saying it contradicted Security Council resolutions.
