Global healthcare travel body official thanks Turkey

LEFKOSA, Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus

Global Healthcare Travel Council (GTHC)’s newly appointed vice-president from Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus hailed Turkey’s support for his election to the global travel body.

Speaking to Anadolu Agency in Lefkosa on Thursday, Ahmet Savasan said: “Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus has gotten an international representation thanks to Turkey’s decisive stance and Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus’s Tourism and Environment Minister’s [Fikri Ataoglu] support.”

His election to the council was welcomed by 57 countries but it disturbed Greek Cypriots on the island, according to Savasan.

Savasan was appointed as a vice president of the council in April at the General Assembly meeting of the Council, where the TRNC Minister of Tourism and Environment Ataoglu was also present as th e Honorary Committee Member.

Cyprus has been divided since 1974, when a Greek Cypriot coup was followed by violence against the island's Turks, and Ankara's intervention as a guarantor power.

The Greek Cypriot administration is a member of the EU and is internationally recognized by all nations except Turkey, which remains the only country that recognizes the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus.
