Eroglu condemns EU resolution on missing people in Cyprus

3 March 2015

A statement issued by President Dervis Eroglu’s office has condemned the EU Parliament’s resolution for missing people in Cyprus, stating that it is biased and misleading.

According to the Presidency, in the Resolution, the Turkish Cypriot side and Turkey are blamed for removing remains of Greek Cypriot missing persons from their burial places in the village of Pasakoy/Assia but the subject of the slaughtering of women and children and old people in villages like Taskent/Tochni has received no mention at all.

The statement also says that there was a need to set the record straight on the matter and adds that the issue of 493 Turkish Cypriots who were missing during the period 1963-74 should have also been mentioned in the resolution. It also goes on to say that accusing the Turkish army is wrong and unfair.
