The UK’s Foreign Office said on Thursday that reports in Turkish Cypriot media that Prime Minister Boris Johnson would look into the issue of direct flights to the TRNC were not true.

The announcement came after a report by TAK news agency that quotes Prime Minister Ersin Tatar, who is in the UK for contacts, saying that Johnson was positive on the issue of direct flights to the TRNC.

“These reports are untrue. The UK’s position on this has not changed. Direct flights between the UK and the north of Cyprus would not be in line with the UK’s international obligations,” a spokesperson for the Foreign Office said later in the day.

The UK Court of Appeals has also confirmed that direct flights between the UK and the TRNC would breach the UK’s international obligations under the 1944 Chicago Convention on Civil Aviation.
