A little while ago a Greek Cypriot national stole the Turkish flag and the photo of the founding President Rauf Raif Denktaş from the Akdoğan Dr. Fazıl Küçük Primary School.
Today Prime Minister Ersin Tatar and the Minister for National Education and Culture Nazım Çavuşoğlu were in the Akdoğan village to attend 2019-2020 education year of the Akdoğan Dr. Fazıl Küçük Primary School.
Prime Minister Ersin Tatar brought a Turkish flag to the opening ceremony of the school and said that this flag is the symbol of independence and freedom adding that they would not allow anyone to touch their flag.
Noting that the flag being stolen had led to many reactions from a majority of Turkish Cypriots Prime Minister Ersin Tatar said “we always support an agreement and peace being found in Cyprus but we will never accept anyone disrespecting our flag of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus values”.
Reiterating that the flag is a symbol of independence and peace Prime Minister Tatar said that they would never allow anyone to touch the flag again and said that he wanted to give a clear message on this issue.
