Hasipoğlu stressed the necessity of bringing the Turkish side's just cause in the Cyprus issue to the UN's agenda, saying, "In order for our just cause to be discussed on a fairer ground at the United Nations, Turkey needs to lead efforts to address the issue of fairness and functionality in the UN."

Referring to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan's statement, "The world is bigger than five," Hasipoğlu pointed out that the most disadvantaged country is the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus.

Hasipoğlu stated, "Imagine a country that says 'yes' to all solution plans, the Greek Cypriot side being an EU member rejecting everything. We, on the other hand, continue to suffer from isolation and restrictions. I don't think that countries belonging to an organization like the United Nations can accept their children living under these conditions. The five permanent members of the Security Council are in favor of maintaining the status quo due to their own interests. The Greek Cypriot side is content with the comfort zone created by the United Nations and the European Union after the Annan Plan process in 2004, and they don't need a solution."

Continuing his statement, Hasipoğlu said, "The UN Security Council has turned a blind eye to some of the developments on the island, and they have questioned the UN Security Council's decisions for us. For example, the Ortega report that revealed the looting of 111 Turkish villages on the island and the atrocities committed by the Greeks, as well as the report by Kofi Annan, who reported years later that the Greeks were the party that did not want a solution, and that the isolation and embargoes imposed on the Turkish Cypriot people should be lifted, are General Secretary reports that bear witness to history. Why haven't these reports turned into Security Council resolutions? Because the Security Council is based on its own interests and has become an entity that cannot produce a solution and cannot dispense justice. The Security Council mechanism established for a solution and peace has become a structure that not only does not solve problems but also generates problems. The recent UN Security Council decision on Pile is another example of this mentality. It has shown how far the United Nations is from taking a neutral position in line with the principle of impartiality on the island and how it represents only one side on the island."

He added, "The world and our country need a fair UN. Our expectation from these general institutions is that radical changes are put on the agenda and come to life for a fairer world, an accountable UN."

Hasipoğlu concluded, "We have no doubt that Turkey, which has initiated the struggle for a more just world order at the UN, will take its deserved place in a just order that will emerge as a result."
