The Deputy Speaker of Parliament Zorlu Töre issued a written statement reacting to the military cooperation agreement signed between the Greek Cypriot administration and France.
Describing the agreement as a strategic target of France aimed at the hydrocarbons in the Eastern Mediterranean, Töre called on the Greek Cypriot administration and France to avoid such dangerous steps during a time when a demilitarized Federal Cyprus without guarantees or United Cyprus are voiced.
Stating that efforts towards taking the agreement further would invite new scenarios in the Mediterranean, he invited France to use common sense.
“We need to face with the history. If we don’t be careful then Cyprus would become like Crete” Töre added.
