Kuzey Kıbrıs Türk Cumhuriyeti’nin kuruluşunun 36. yıl dönümünü tebrik ediyor, bağımsızlık mücadelesinin aziz şehitlerini ve kahraman gazilerini hürmetle yad ediyorum.

TRNC was established on Nov. 15, 1983, almost a decade after Turkey’s Cyprus Peace Operation on the island, which stopped persecution and violence against Turkish Cypriots by ultra-nationalist Greek Cypriots.
