TRC not TRNC | a Rose by any other Name

“The Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus will be renamed as the Turkish Republic of Cyprus if the Cyprus issue is not resolved by July 1, that is, before the presidency of the Republic of Cyprus (Greek) in the EU, Sabah newspaper said.

Afterwards, Northern Cyprus will turn to the international community to recognise the state under a new name.

According to the newspaper after renaming, Northern Cyprus is expected to be recognised by member countries of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC). “

There was no explanation as to why the name change was important except implying that Cyprus is Turkish in the same manner that some Greek Cypriots provocatively proclaim that Cyprus is Greek. If this is the case then, in my opinion, relationships in the Middle East just became more difficult.
