WHY NOT TWO INDEPENDENT STATES IN CYPRUS?

WHY NOT TWO INDEPENDENT STATES IN CYPRUS?

Public opinion polls held recently in both parts of Cyprus, the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (KKTC) and the Greek Cypriot side, revealed the stunning fact that both people see the sustainable solution in two separate states rather than a unified federal state. The ages-long mistrust of each other by both peoples of Cyprus finally sur-faced as in Brussels, where nowadays something toward separation is cooking in this capital city of the European Union and Belgium.

The political decision-makers of the globe and the borderline builders of the world consistently disregard the existence of the Turkish Cypriots in Cyprus, their self-proclaimed state, the KKTC and their basic human rights.

The KKTC is now in its 44th year of existence since the “Bloody Christmas” of ...

ERDOĞAN’S VISIT TO US START OF A NEW ERA

ERDOĞAN’S VISIT TO US START OF A NEW ERA

Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s visit to the United States was so strapped for time that he could barely even breathe.

The main cause of visit was to participate in the 62nd United Na-tions General Assembly meeting.
But the fully packed program gives hints of the beginning of a new era in Turkey’s political relations with the US and the revalued strategic importance of Turkey by the White House.

In particular the Nabucco pipeline, energy demands of European countries, safety and control of energy resources in Middle East and Caspian regions, Iran’s threats and the catastrophic position of the US in Iraq have forced American policymakers to renew the US approach to Turkey.
It seems Turkey will play a different and important role in the Middle East aft...

PROPERTY EXCHANGE NIGHTMARE IN SOUTHERN CYPRUS

PROPERTY EXCHANGE NIGHTMARE IN SOUTHERN CYPRUS

A possible approval by the European Court of Human Rights of a property exchange between a Greek and Turkish Cypriot is on the agenda. The European court seems to be in the final stages of deciding whether to accept a land exchange between a Greek Cypriot and a Turkish Cypriot. The European court will possibly ratify the exchange of properties in Cyprus in the case of Mike Tymvios, a Greek Cypriot who petitioned the Property Commission in the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (KKTC) for a land exchange with a Turkish Cypriot. Now the case is in the hands of the European court for approval.

The move has far-ranging implications for all Turkish and Greek Cypriot refugee applicants to the European court, who would then have to use the Property Commission until a Cyprus settlement is...

CEMETERY FOR GREEK SOLDIERS IN SOUTHERN CYPRUS

CEMETERY FOR GREEK SOLDIERS IN SOUTHERN CYPRUS

The local Greek newspaper Simerini published a comment on Aug. 14, 2007 about the interment of Lt. Panikos Sotiris Danezis of the Greek Hellenic Army in the Makedonitissa Tomb in the Greek Cypriot sector of Nicosia. The remains of his body were found in Ozanköy (Kazafani) near Girne (Kyrenia) during the excavations being done by the Autonomous Missing Persons Committee. He was a sub-lieutenant in the troops sent by the government of Greece illegally to the island and was shot during combat with Turkish Peace Mission forces on July 22, 1974, at Bellapais.

According to Simerini, the excavated remains were identified by a DNA test and were inhumed with a military memorial.
His name is not in the list of the Greek mainland contingent dep-loyed in Cyprus according to the 1960 Cyp...

WHOSE EXISTENCE IS ILLEGAL IN CYPRUS?

WHOSE EXISTENCE IS ILLEGAL IN CYPRUS?

Is it the Turkish troops or the Greek Cypriot administration whose existence is illegal in Cyprus?

On behalf of the Greek Cypriot administration spokesman Vassilis Palmas challenged Turkey to take the “Cyprus issue” to the Interna-tional Court of Justice (ICJ) in The Hague after a threatening remark by the Greek Cypriot leader Tassos Papadopoulos declaring the Turkish Armed Forces (TSK) “the sole enemy” of his people.

Actually Mr. Papadopoulos, who practiced law for years, knows quite well that Turkey is a guarantor country with Britain and Greece and that the presence of the TSK on the island is based on interna-tional agreements and fully complies with international rules and regulations and Part IV of the 1960 Treaty of Guarantee of the Consti-tution of the Repub...
