Only if Turkey does what Greece has done and gives up its claim to Cyprus.

The only basic difference between us is our high school books.


if you think you can bring together two populations who have lived seperate since 1963 together all in one go you really do not understand the problem.


If you can seperate two populations who have lived together since 1571, then you can bring together two populations who have lived seperated since 1963.

I would rather have my country Turk-free. :wink:

There is only ONE main population in Cyprus.


Yeah, Cypriots, and they have two different heritages.

Nowadays noone can distinguish between the Saxons and Normans who once made up the country of England. They are just called English.



Nonsense - although such comparisons are limited as each case is unique. Besides, Cyprus' history has been catalogued for so much longer it's an insult to use the UK/GB as a role model.

Individuals have many heritages but the Cypriot nation has one characteristic. Greek.

Not everyone who lives in England is English or even of Anglo Saxon descent. "Cypriot" is a (political) nationality like "British". The majority Cypriots, natives, are Greek. Maybe from the Mycenaean wave or the Alexandrian wave or any of the many interactions in-between but we are principally Greek. Speaking Greek for thousands of years. Have the English spoken English for more than some centuries?

They should have been only in Greek. It's the British who introduced Turkish and caused these problems.

Let's carry on with what the EU has adopted now for the present and future of Cyprus. Just Greek.

...and if the Government was only functional in Greek, is that really to the advantage of them?

why must Cyprus be Greek, why not multilingual?
