Former Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci

Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci has written to the World Health Organisation (WHO) and asked them to include the occupied territories in their coronavirus pandemic reports.

According to reports in the Turkish-Cypriot press, Akinci wrote a letter to WHO leader Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus reminding him that the Turkish Cypriot people are fighting the virus too and are taking all the necessary precautionary measures.

Akinci urged WHO to establish a direct line of communication between them and show solidarity.

“WHO has a major role to play in our battle against the virus, therefore the north needs a direct contact in order to communicate effectively,” the letter concluded.
