Current Situation

Once Talat had a fiery opposition against Turkeys policies upon Cyprus problem. Then he realized that Turkey was one of the concerned parties who would put his sign under any possible solution treaty; though it was always very clear...

Long time ago; perhaps it's been more than a year he publicly declared that it wasn't possiblºe to act without Turkey... Then as you should well remember; his political party CTP collaborated with AKPs authors(Erdogan and Gul), DP(S. Denktash], R. Denktash, partly BDH(Akincis party) and an joint acceptable action plan had been made which also approved by Turkeys Security council...

They took every step according to this plan... They considered the negotiations as a hard challenge between Turkish side and Greek side; their allies included.

Turkish side which I mentioned above who they are, played every trump card they had in their hands in order to maximize what would they get in the end. They managed to get %80 of their demands in the final round of the negotiations. It's perhaps because Greek side didn't exert to get what they want or Turkish side really had strong trump cards to surpass the Greek sides demands.

You may remember that a fortnight prior to final round of negotiations Gul warned all relevant foreign parties if the Turkish thesis hadn't been accepted they wouldn't recognize any other conclusion... Their plan is still in action... Talat can't be a kill-joy in this situation... He will play the game according its rules until the end of this year. Greek side is aware of that and that's what they have been waiting for too... If Turkey gets a date for negotiations of EU accession, she will become more flexible regarding Cyprus problem and be sure of that a new action plan will be made in order to satisfy simple majority of GCs and reach the goal of unified Cyprus. Untill then, they will work to ease the economical pains of TCs. This will bring more power both to Talats and Erdogans party to ensure a more powerful government which would be dominant amongst others and provide stability to their position... We really need them to solve the Cyprus problem... How strong those duo becomes means sooner we would find a just, viable and stable solution to Cyprus problem...

Officially Turkey policy upon Cyprus problem doesn't abuse the current situation as it is supposed by some individuals, baseless throwers and self-interest groups. The ones that try to abuse the current situation and give effort to make TRNC recognized by some countries are the well known statusquoers both in North Cyprus and Turkey; perhaps even their backers in some foreign countries.


According to my analysis it is clear that Greek side didn't get as much as what Turkish side got... It was really impossible for those GCs who were believing the rightness and necessity of the Greek side thesis acceptance which would satisfy them to say yes to the Annan Plan.


The result annoyed, dissatisfied vast majority of GCs and they said no to the plan despite all blackmailings...


Everyone have to respect to their democratic free will though it is true that some paranoiac Greek or GC interest groups undemocraticaly tried to influence and threaten the majority in order to make them to say yes or no... This also happened in North ...

So... the circumstances were almost same for all relevant parties even some individuals bring lawsuits by claiming that peoples human rights violated during the propaganda process before the referanda...


A similar case could occure in an unified Cyprus... You know the simple rule of our democrasy... The seperate simple majority vote is adequate to determine the accept or reject any common issue...

Simple majority(Even though we may say vast majority) of GCs said no to the 5th version of Annan Plan because it didn't satisfy most of their demands and expectations... Simple majority of TCs said yes to the 5th version of Anan Plan because it satisfied most of their demands and expectations....

The question is what shoul be done in this situation....

Should we forget about the 5th version of Annan Plan and make a brand new solution plan or keep negotiating it till it becomes acceptable for both parties simple majority.


In my opinion a new plan must be made to satisfy both parties concerns, demands and expectations. This new solution plan must be based on a new unitary state ... I don't believe that any plan based on bi-communal, bi-zonal federatively unified state model would bring us a just, viable, safe and stable solution...


But apparently majority of both sides still believe and support that a solution is possible in frame work of Annan Plan... OK then... In this case they should keep negotiating it...

That's my 2 cents
