If the disarmament of the islands in the Aegean is not carried out as soon as possible, we will challenge the sovereignty of the islands in the context of international law and treaties. “Their stomach ache is because the Turkish Cypriots raised their heads, living free and independent with their flag, their land and having their own national will.”
