Turkish Vice President Fuat Oktay has reacted to the decision taken by the US to partially lift the arms embargo imposed against the Greek Cypriot administration in South Cyprus.

Making a statement via his Twitter account the Turkish Vice President Oktay said that the removal of the arms embargo is a repeat of the mistake made by Europe on the island.

“Turkey will take whatever steps are necessary to safeguard the security, peace and prosperity of the Turkish Cypriot people against any approaches that are aimed at increasing tensions in the region. Turkey and the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus are aware of the games being played against them in the region. As a nation, we will foil these games together with determination. We will walk towards the future together and we will not forgive those who are a part of these games” wrote Oktay.
