WHY THE CYPRUS PROBLEM CANNOT BE SOLVED

WHY THE CYPRUS PROBLEM CANNOT BE SOLVED

The main factors that have made Greek Cyprus unwilling to help solve the dispute on the island are international powers requiring that the roots of the problem and the responsible party be disregarded and clearing the path for Greek Cyprus’s membership to EU.

Turkish Cypriot President Rauf Denktaş has been characterized as intransigent, but this does not conform to reality. As a matter of fact, it was the Greek side that rejected all UN proposals for reunification of the island.

 

The Turkish side, while in favor of Cuellar’s “Set of Proposals” in March 1986, Boutros-Ghali’s “Set of Ideas” in 1992 and finally the Annan plan on April 24, 2004, the Greek side, beguiling the international community to the last minute, looking for support by pretending ...

EMBARGOES ON TURKISH CYPRIOTS DATE BACK TO 1965

EMBARGOES ON TURKISH CYPRIOTS DATE BACK TO 1965

I often wonder about those who say the Cyprus problem started after the Turkish intervention in 1974. This depiction is just a fairy tale and is often used to mislead people with minimal knowledge of the issue.

I am also perplexed by those who say there are no embargoes on the Turkish Cypriots.

UN resolutions — particularly No. 541 dated Nov. 18, 1983 — re-strict all kinds of international relations for the Turkish Cypriots, from direct flights to communication, from education to cultural, in all as-pects of civilized life.

Since that date the Turkish Cypriots and their unilaterally de-clared state, the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (KKTC), have been considered legally invalid by UN member states, with Turkish Cypriots suffering under unjust poli...

IS THERE A SHADOW HANGING OVER CYPRUS MEMBERSHIP?

IS THERE A SHADOW HANGING OVER CYPRUS MEMBERSHIP?

Cyprus’s joining the European Union has been overshadowed by the country’s unresolved political division that has existed since 1956. The island has been divided into a Turkish sector and a Greek sector as far back as 1956 under the British colonial government. First the capital Nicosia was divided by barbed wire, to be followed later by other towns and rather large villages.

The United Nations Peacekeeping Force in Cyprus (UNFICYP) landed on the island after heated inter-communal clashes took place in 1964 according to UN Resolution No. 186, dated March 4, 1964, and not after the 1974 intervention. Most people think the UNFICYP was deployed on the island after the 1974 intervention. This, of course, is not the truth.

The Cyprus problem, originating from the Greek Meg...

OVERSHADOWED ACCESSION OF CYPRUS

OVERSHADOWED ACCESSION OF CYPRUS

The prospect of joining the European Union of Cyprus is over-shadowed by the country’s unresolved political division since 1956.

The island was divided into Turkish Sector and Greek Sector as far as in 1956 by the British Colonial Government. First the capital Nicosia was divided by the barbed wires than followed by the other towns and rather big villages.

UNFICYP landed to the island after the severe inter communal clashes took place in 1964 according to UN resolution No. 186, dated March 4, 1964 and not after 1974 intervention.
Most people thinks that UNFICYP deployed in the island after the 1974 intervention. This of course is not the truth. The problem exists in the island since 1947.

IS THE KKTC A PSEUDO STATE

IS THE KKTC A PSEUDO STATE

Definitely not.

The rights of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (KKTC) as an independent sovereign state are well defined in Articles 3 and 4 of the Montevideo Convention. Articles 3 and 4 of this convention, dated 1933, are exactly as below:

Article 3: The political existence of a state is independent of rec-ognition by other states. Even before recognition the state has the right to defend its integrity and independence, to provide for its conservation and prosperity, and consequently to organize itself as it sees fit, to le-gislate upon its interests, administer its services, and to define the ju-risdiction and competence of its courts. The exercise of these rights has no other limitation than the exercise of the rights of other states according to International La...
