It is only natural for the TRNC to use the same time zone as Turkey with which it shares relations  in all fields, Minister of National Education and Culture Ozdemir Berova has said.

Speaking on a BRT television broadcast, the minister argued that “Turkey is the TRNC’s only window on the world”.

We share intense social, economic, political and cultural relations with Turkey. It is only natural that we remain in the same time zone with Turkey as a result of these relations”, he said.

Touching upon his earlier remarks that changing the clocks will results in jet lag and the criticisms that followed his comments, Berova complained that there was a lot of misinformation being circulated. He said that it had been scientifically proven that humans experience difficulties in adjusting to time changes.
