KTFF asks for lifting of embargo on sports

Following the recent call by President Mustafa Akinci for the lifting of sports embargoes imposed on the Turkish Cypriots, chairman of the Turkish Cypriot Football Federation (KTFF) Hasan Sertoglu has asked Akinci to take action against these practices.

On Tuesday, President Akinci said that the prevention of the “right of holding [international] sports in the TRNC is one of the biggest problems faced on the embargoes issue” and said that it is “a crime against humanity”.

Referring to Akinci’s statements, Sertoglu expressed the belief that the ongoing Cyprus negotiations will bring no results; therefore they should all work towards lifting the embargoes. Turkish Cypriot football players wanted the challenge of playing with other teams in the international arena, he said.
