Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said that no concessions will be made on Turkey’s policy concerning the Turkish Cypriots.

Addressing the Sixth World Forum on Energy Regulation in Istanbul on Monday, Erdogan said: “It is not possible for us to make any concessions on our policy regarding the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus and the island’s energy resources.”

Erdogan also said that Turkey was a key country for utilising and delivering the resources offshore the island, which he added belonged to everyone who lived there.

Political tensions in the Cyprus have eased since talks resumed on 15th May and Mustafa Akinci was elected the new Turkish Cypriot president last month.
