TRNC condemns Greek Cypriot police officers' firing on two Turks
Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC) on Thursday strongly condemned the Greek Cypriot police officers' firing on two Turkish Cypriots in the village of Pile where both Turkish Cypriots and Greek Cypriots live side by side.
TRNC's condemnation was filed at the United Nations Peacekeeping Force in Cyprus (UNFICYP).
The TRNC government called on the Greek Cypriot administration to refrain from such provocative incidents that may end in unexpected results.
Acting Prime Minister and Foreign Minister of the TRNC, Huseyin Ozgurgun, said that they would not just watch such incidents.
"The TRNC is determined to take every step to facilitate the tranquility and security of its citizens in Pile," Ozgurgun stressed.
Greek Cypriot police officers on late Wednesday opened fire on two Turkish Cypriots, Sahin Kocero and Suleyman Kocero, in the village of Pile.
The Turkish Cypriot Village Headman of Pile, Necdet Ermetal, said that the Koceros were fired at by the Greek Cypriot police officers while they were cruising in a car with a Greek Cypriot license plate.
While the Koceros were not injured, their car was badly damaged by bullets of the Greek Cypriot police officers.
Turkish Cypriot Police Department and UN officials began an investigation following the incident in Pile.
