The Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC) on Dec. 14 said that the United States move to remove the embargo, specifically on arms, on the Greek Cypriot side of the island posed a threat to peace and stability in the Eastern Mediterranean.

The TRNC claims that the U.S. supported the Greek Cypriot administrations recent policies that escalated the tension in the region and ignored the presence of Turkish Cypriots on the island.

The TRNC expressed concern over U.S. support for the Greek Cypriot administration as it appears to be supporting a group threatening peace.
