The panel, supported by the Presidency, Ahmet Yesevi University, the Council of Elders of the Turkic States Organization, and the Embassy of the Republic of Turkey in Nicosia, commenced today at Concorde Tower. The opening speeches of the panel were delivered by President Ersin Tatar, Vice President of the Republic of Turkey Cevdet Yılmaz, and AK Party Deputy Chairman and Chairman of the Council of Elders of the Turkic States Organization Binali Yıldırım.

Yıldırım emphasized that the isolation and embargoes imposed on the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC) could never be approved, and a strong struggle against this injustice would continue. He reiterated that they would stand by the Turkish Cypriot people and spare no sacrifice in this regard. He pointed out that sacrifices had been made, and martyrs had been given in Cyprus, and it was necessary to convey these facts to the youth.

Yıldırım, referring to the establishment of the Turkic States Organization (TSO) and recent developments, stated that the organization extended from the Caucasus to Central Asia and the Balkans. He noted that the latest addition to the organization was the TRNC as an observer member. He explained that this achievement was not easy to attain and described the process involved, highlighting the determination of the President of the Republic of Turkey, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.

With the TRNC becoming an observer member, Yıldırım said that a process had begun to secure the presence of the TSO in the Eastern Mediterranean. He emphasized the importance of developing trade volumes among member countries. Highlighting the significance of the Silk Road route, Yıldırım stated that Turkey was making efforts to strengthen this route, invest, and enhance trade with countries in this corridor.

Yıldırım also mentioned that the inclusion of the TRNC flag in this context indicated a sign that embargoes would eventually be lifted. He pointed out that during the TSO summit held on March 16, for the first time, the President of the TRNC was present with the TRNC flag and delivered a historic speech in which he stated that the TRNC represented the Turkish presence in the Eastern Mediterranean.
