Turkey Visit of Dr. Salih İzbul, Minister of Health of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, and the accompanying delegation (16 September 2015)

Dr. Mehmet Müezzinoğlu, Minister of Health of the Republic of Turkey admitted the delegation to his office after he accompanied Dr. Salih İzbul, Minister of Health of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus during his visit to Health Disaster Coordination Center (SAKOM) affiliated to the Ministry of Health. 

Two Ministers held a common press conference and then they came together to have lunch with the delegations.  

As is known, there is a special tie between Turkey and TRNC and a strong solidarity between two folks. Cooperation activities in the field of health gained momentum within the framework of the deepening cooperation in all sectors between two countries.

Our health-related relations with TRNC are executed within the scope of the “Health Cooperation Agreement” signed on 24.03.2008. Besides the current health cooperation agreement, fruitful cooperation activities between two Ministries developed even more through the additional protocol and sister hospital protocol which was signed last year and covers training and exchange of experts as well.  

In the periods ahead, our Ministry will provide any support to improve the current cooperation and to contribute to development of health sector in TRNC. As always, our Ministry will continue to do whatever requires, with the same determination, for peace and well-being of the Cyprus Turks.
