Source: Die Linke “With the opening of the city of Varosha in the Turkish-occupied northern part of Cyprus, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is fueling tensions on the Mediterranean island. The unilateral steps are a clear violation of the UN-mediated ceasefire agreement and must be condemned by the German government, ”explains Sevim Dagdelen, chairwoman of the DIE LINKE parliamentary group in the Foreign Affairs Committee. Dagdelen continues: “The illegal actions in Varosha are part of the numerous violations of international law in Turkey, including the invasions of the Turkish army in northern Syria, the attacks on northern Iraq, the arms deliveries to the anti-democratic Muslim Brotherhood-supported government in Libyan Tripoli as well the military aid for the Azerbaijani autocrat family Aliyev for the attacks on Nagorno-Karabakh. With the provocation in Cyprus, Erdogan escalated the natural gas conflict immediately after Chancellor Angela Merkel announced further benefits for Turkey. It is taking revenge for the German government to condemn Turkey’s actions together with clear consequences for Erdogan at the EU summit has blocked. DIE LINKE demands an end to arms deliveries and financial aid to Turkey. “
