Turkish Ambassador to Nicosia Derya Kanbay, responded to the a recent statement made by Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras regarding the removal of Turkish troops from north Cyprus, as part of the reunification deal on Cyprus.

According to Turkish Cypriot daily ‘Kibris Postasi’, the ambassador rarely makes statements on the Cyprus problem. Kanbay said, as he addressed a meeting he held with the Society of Martyrs Families and Disabled War Veterans:

“The description of the Cyprus issue as ‘the occupation of the island by Turkey’, made by the Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras is very interesting, because for sure, he was not born in those years.

Perhaps he was a little baby. He does not remember that a murderer, who came here from his country 60 years ago, had been committing crimes on the island since the 1950s,” he said.
