The Northern Cypriot broadcaster Kibris Genc TV has confirmed to Eurovoix.com that they wish to participate in the 2015 Turkvizyon Song Contest in Turkmenistan.
Northern Cyprus debuted in Turkvizyon in the 2013 contest in Turkey, they finished 10th in the final with the singers Gommalar and their song “Havalanıyor”. The region then attempted to participate again in 2014 holding a national selection and selected Ipek Amber to represent them in Kazan, however due to Northern Cyprus not being recognised by Russia as a country they were unable to travel to the contest.
Participation in Turkmenistan is likely to face the same issues as 2014, with Turkmenistan not officially recognising Northern Cyprus as an independent state. For Northern Cyprus to participate the participants would have to travel on Turkish passports.
