“We cannot avoid the rights of those who have lived in Cyprus for 25-30 years, they delivered their children […] embraced the Cypriot culture and received an education here”, he stated adding that the children of the [Turkish] workers are even having the status of the foreign students at universities despite been born and lived in the occupied area of Cyprus. “These children are our children and this issue is a violation of human rights”, he argued.
