Occupied: Reacting to the issue of the illegal airport
The "Prime Minister" defends the idea of the amendment at a time when the Turkish Cypriot opposition rejects the new plan.
The possibility of changing the status of the illegal airport to a "domestic airport" in Turkey sparks a new political controversy in the occupied territories. According to the current Turkish Cypriot press, the "Prime Minister" is defending the idea of the amendment at a time when the Turkish Cypriot opposition rejects the new plan.
According to the Press and Information Office, "Kibris" writes today that "Prime Minister" Faiz Suzuoglu stated that the inclusion of the "airport" in the status of domestic flights in Turkey will reduce ticket prices of 37 euros.
Mr. Soutzouglou commented on the reactions after the relevant reports the day before yesterday and said that these are unsubstantiated claims by the press that occupied Cyprus will become a province of Turkey. He also argued that the price of airline tickets is of great importance to the economy and income of the occupiers. He added that in his contacts in Turkey he discussed the issue of high airfare prices and that among the alternatives for reducing prices is the possibility of evaluating the "airport" in the status of domestic flights of Turkey.
The reactions of the T / C party leaders
On the same subject, "Yeni Duzen" reports that the leader of the Republican Turkish Party (CTP), Tufan Erhiurman, described as "lack of seriousness" the allegations, as he called them, of the "prime minister", about the future status of the "airport". "You are talking about two sovereign states. "These allegations are in line with what you are saying," Erhurman asked Mr. Suzuoglu.
"Airport" leader Yeni Bakςs writes that the leader of the Community Democratic Party (TDP), Cemal γιzgγιt, recalled the bankruptcy of "Turkish Cypriot airlines" and described the new discussion on the "airport" as "unacceptable".
"Kibris Postasi" refers to the statements of the leader of the People's Party (HR), Kutret Ozersay regarding the future status of the "airport". According to him, during the "pre-election" period, such allegations should not be given importance.
The "Haberator" publishes the opinion of the leader of the United Cyprus Party (BKR), Izet Izcan on the same issue. Mr τζzcan argued that "with the lifting of foreign controls, the edifice called tdbk will become completely unsustainable". Similar is the view of the leader of the leader of the Community Liberation Party - New Forces (TKP-YG), Mehmet Tsakici, according to which with the change of the status of the "airport" "the Turkish Cypriot people abandon the goal of self-government".
