Note that, Turkey announced that, it did not recognize Cyprus’ chairmanship in EU. FM Ahmed Davudoglu noted that, Turkey would continue collaboration with EU, but would not join any event which is chaired by Cyprus.

Main reason of the current difference of opinion is the recognition of Cyprus Republic and acceptance to EU since 2004. Turkey does not recognize Cyprus.
