THE WALL BUILT IN 1964 IS FINALLY DEMOLISHED

THE WALL BUILT IN 1964 IS FINALLY DEMOLISHED

The island of Cyprus was not divided in 1974 but in 1963, im-mediately after attacks by armed Greek Cypriot militia on Turkish quarters and unarmed Turkish Cypriot civilians.

The notorious wall of Ledra Street and the Lokmacı Barricade, in the very heart of the Venetian-built old city of Nicosia, were constructed early in 1964.

The Ledra Street eyesore represents the division for the Greek quarter just as its counterpart, the Lokmacı Barricade, does for the Turkish, and was the first checkpoint between Turkish and Greek Cy-priots.

Both barriers remained for 43 years, but the Greek guard post and the notorious wall in the Greek quarter at the bottom of Ledra Street, like Lokmacı, is now history.

There has been a great deal of stubbornness from both sides re-...

CYPRUS-FRANCE MILITARY ACCORD WILL IT DEEPEN GAP BETWEEN TURKISH AND GREEK CYPRIOTS?

CYPRUS-FRANCE MILITARY ACCORD WILL IT DEEPEN GAP BETWEEN TURKISH AND GREEK CYPRIOTS?

France hoped to obtain the use of a key air base somewhere in the Middle East to facilitate its ambition of playing a major role in the eastern Mediterranean after Jan. 16, 1991, or the US’s Operation Desert Storm.

In plain terms, after this operation, the French influence, existing in the Middle East since the late 1800s, was successfully wiped out by the Anglo-Saxons, and full control of the area moved into their hands.

France had to find an ally to creep into the area; there were no other options. She had to find a country with which the benefits of an alliance would be mutual. After a comprehensive search, Cyprus, hav-ing problems with Turkey, was chosen as the ideal partner.

The Greek Cypriots, on the other hand, were in a state of unrest due to the existence of...

HOW GREEK CYPRIOTS DECEIVED EUROPEAN UNION

HOW GREEK CYPRIOTS DECEIVED EUROPEAN UNION

The genius trickery planned to eliminate the Turkish Language from being one of the “Main Languages” of the European Union, was successfully staged during the annexation talks of Cyprus with EU.

The European Union, which claims “Liberty, Democracy, Respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms and The rule of law” as the fundamental principles of their establishment, was unbelievably misled by Greek Cypriots during the negotiations and eventually deceived at the end.

Item 2 of Zürich Agreement, agreed upon and initialed by the Greek and Turkish Prime Ministers in Zürich on February 11, 1959 titled as “BASIC STRUCTURE OF THE REPUBLIC OF CYPRUS” written as “The official languages of the Republic of Cyprus shall be Greek and Turkish. Legislative and admini...

IS IT A PETROL CRISIS OR A TRICK FOR SOVEREIGNTY

IS IT A PETROL CRISIS OR A TRICK FOR SOVEREIGNTY

The Greek Cypriot Administration (GCA), finally managed to con-vey the artificially created petrol crisis based on the hydrocarbon ex-ploration in her so called “Exclusive Economic Zone” in to the EU and European Parliament.

Actually this was the target of the GCA, to create a dispute with Turkey and push Europe as a whole to deal with political issues pro-voked artificially by her self, with Turkey.

Turkey is not a party to the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea, UNCLOS, due to the continental shelf demands of Greece for her Dodecanese islands in Aegean sea. Turkey duly did not accept the 12 nautical miles width of the territorial waters of the Dodecanese islands as declared by Greece on the bases of UNCLOS and noted this act as “Casus Belli”, a “Cause of war”.<...

THE OLD HORSE OF THE UN: THE CYPRUS PROBLEM

THE OLD HORSE OF THE UN: THE CYPRUS PROBLEM

The old horse of the UN Security Council and the secretaries-general of the UN –from U Thant to Annan — is definitely the Cyprus problem. The partnership of the Republic of Cyprus was established with two communities: the Greeks and Turks of the island, by way of the 1960 Treaty of Establishment of the Republic of Cyprus.

However, it would later be destroyed in 1963-64 by Archbishop Makarios III and his criminal crew — one of which was the present pretender to the post of “President of Cyprus,” Mr. Papadopulos.

This is a glaring fact known to all concerned parties but they choose to ignore it for their self-interests.

The political decision of the big Western powers of that era was to recognize Makarios III and his government as if it was composed...
