Russia has no decisions yet on flights to Northern Cyprus. This was announced on Friday, September 23, by the press secretary of the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Peskov.
“So far, no decisions have been made on this matter,” the Kremlin spokesman said, answering the question whether such an option is really possible, informs RIA News.
The day before, the Turkish president said that he had discussed with his Russian counterpart the possible launch of flights from Russia to the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus.
Cyprus since 1974 after the armed invasion of Turkey is divided between the Greek and Turkish communities. 37% of the territory of the island was occupied, on which the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC) was proclaimed in 1983. Only Ankara recognized it.
Negotiations between the communities on the reunification of Cyprus are being mediated by the UN. The dialogue was interrupted after the failure of the next round, which took place in 2017 in the Swiss town of Crans-Montana. Now the parties are making attempts to resume negotiations.
