The Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Saturday said the U.S. move to lift the arms embargo on the Greek Cypriot administration of the island posed threat to peace and stability in the Eastern Mediterranean.

In an official statement by the Foreign Ministry, it was stated that the U.S. supported the Greek Cypriot administrations recent policies which escalated regional tension and ignored the presence of Turkish Cypriots on the island.

It added that the TRNC was fully aware of why the Greek side always sought arms and expressed concern over the policy of patting the Greek Cypriot Administration on the back despite policies threatening peace.

It went on to say that Washingtons insincerity toward peace negotiations on Cyprus would become evident if the bill went into effect.

Also, tensions on the island would grow further due to the increasing ill policies of the Greek Cypriot Administration toward Turkish residents of the island, which is expected to grow bigger with removal of the arms embargo.
