EU reiterates need for Turkey to respect international law and Cyprus’ sovereignty in letter to British Cypriots

A letter by an EU official on behalf of the President of the European Council, addressed to the Board of British Cypriots, has reiterated a call for Turkey to abide by international law and fully respect the sovereignty of the Republic of Cyprus.

The letter is addressed to Marie Nicholsby, a member of the diaspora organisation, who had written to EU leaders with concerns about Turkey’s provocations.

The response by Brussels states that the EU shares the serious concerns over developments as regards the fenced-off area of Varosha.
