Glafkos Klerides statement

How can we solve it? (keep it civilized)

Glafkos Klerides statement

Postby michalis5354 » Fri Apr 16, 2004 7:46 pm

Glafkos Klerides and the prior leader of Greekcypriots who was in power for 10 years has warned all Greekcypriots that a NO Vote will have adverse negative concequenses over the whole Island.

The Disi Leader and one of the biggest GC parties has supported a clear Yes to the UN plan.

By the way, I need to congradulate all Turkihcypriots who have strongly supported the UN plan.

I am fine, like I was before April 24th. I didn't feel the super negative consequences that they "promised".

We all knew the negative consequences of saying "no". We also knew the much greater consequences of saying "yes". We took the correct decision.

This is what I said on April 15th:
So you expect other countries to put embargo on us or what? The isolation they mean in our case is more of a political isolation, nothing to do with the isolation that you have because you live in an illegal state which is a product of an invasion of a foreign power to an independent state. Don't confuse things.

We will enter the EU and we will become more prosperous than ever before. Make no mistake about this.

What will happen in your case, if some partial lifting of embargo will happen or if some minor countries like Azerbaijan and Pakistan will recognize you remains to be seen. In any case the best you can expect is to be an mediocre middle eastern country (like Turkey, Syria etc).


A solution that will be acceptable by both sides, and will create a democratic, independent state were the human rights of everybody are respected is for the interests of both communities.

The TCs that don't realize that this plan was made to be rejected by the Greek Cypriots in order to take the blame out of Turkey and help their EU accession process, and they try to "cash in" the GC "no" vote for some minor benefits are making a huge mistake.

Is your aim to live in a mediocre middle eastern country that is simply used as a huge military base and is a protectorate of Turkey??? Because with your current policies this is the max you can achieve, and this is the future that Turkey, the UK and US is dreaming for you.

Exactly. We accepted to have a united independent European Cyprus. We also accepted reduction of Turkish soldiers to 650, limit on settlers, give back considerable amount of land, accept GCs return back, etc. Your side rejected all these. So we're waiting now for your proposals because we clearly indicated what we accept.

The discussion about how big are the compromises that TCs have made until today compared with the compromises that GCs have made is discussed already. (if you want make a search and you will find many posts)

Papadopoulos wants a solution, but I don't know how he is thinking to handle it.

If I was the president, a proposal as detailed as the Annan plan would have been made already. It would be a bi-communal federation that would meet all those principles I advocate in here.
Then the world would see that the problem to the solution is not the GC that supposedly do not accept bi-communal federation, but some others, that create "solutions to be rejected" for us to serve their own interests.
