North Cyprus News - Erdogan at ECO

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has called on member states of the Economic Cooperation Organisation (ECO) to strengthen ties with the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus.

The Turkish President touched upon the Cyprus Problem during his address at the opening session of the 13th Economic Cooperation Organisation summit in Islamabad, Pakistan.

Pointing out that the TRNC was being subjected to unjust international embargoes and isolation, Erdoğan said that ECO member countries should do more to ease the Turkish Cypriots’ isolation.

He also proposed that the TRNC’s status within the organisation be upgraded from observer to full member.
