Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Kudret Özersay has criticized the Greek Cypriot Administration after the mosaic flooring at a school in Limassol, South Cyprus was ripped out after it was learned that the tiles were imported from the TRNC within the framework of the Green Line Regulation.
Through his social media account, Özersay said that the incident revealed that the Greek Cypriots cannot even tolerate goods imported from North Cyprus within the framework of the Green Line Regulation.
“The barriers in the minds can only be overcome through developing economic relations. I believe that this incident reflects this very same thing” he wrote.
Özersay also stated that a second news item which stated that the flooring had been removed for technical reasons was not convincing.
“This is why the Turkish Cypriot side is insisting that the Greek Cypriot leadership and the Greek Cypriot side should change its mindset” he added.
