ONURLU, I have watched this forum for about 67 months and supported Cypriots living in the north.... however I find your comment above insulting and insensitive. My then 17 year old uncle was murdered by Turks .... so don't make uncaring statements unless you knopw all the facts.

You know what you vcan have the land and the isolatiopn that comes with it.... because I would hate to think that there's people like you in Cyprus. The hell with the lot of you.

Message from Izcan
"The Chairman of United Cyprus Party, Izzet Izcan said; “It is important that the suggestions of the EU’s term presidency Finland are evaluated with a positive approach.”
In his holiday message Izcan stated that there had been no serious progress towards a solution after the public vote of 24 April and this is why it is necessary that the suggestions from Finland should be evaluated positively. Izcan said he believes that making the Cyprus issue a part of Turkey’s EU membership agenda will delay the solution and he said; “As the status quo becomes more permanent the emigration of Turkish Cypriots will accelerate, thus changing the demographical structure. This will make a solution more difficult.”

That is the most useful information I have read in may months. A true Cypriot wanting to make positive changes for all Cypriots. Well said Mr Izcan. I would love the opportunity to meet with you and discuss the oprtions and views of Cypriots currently living in the North.

To Vassos initial question re the type of solution.

Two independent states sounds radical and hard to swallow, especially for people like me who grew up in the north and that is the focal point of our memories and social life. But if it came about I wonder, will the north be part of the European Union by virtue of the whole of Cyprus being part of the EU now? Or will it have to submit to the membership process from the start as a true independent state?

If it does become part of the EU then it will have to incorporate the Aquis Communautaire in its domestic laws and allow land ownership by all citizens of the EU including Greek Cypriots? If that were to come about it would be kind of strange.

But I do recall Mr Talat saying that the laws of the EU favor the Greek Cypriots and for that reason he would have to go above the laws, whatever that may mean! So I am not too hopeful of any solution based on laws and principles.

What we Greeks and Greek Cypriots don't seem to understand is that foreigners don't understand the reasons for the conflict. What they can understand very easily is the unfairness of 18 per cent of the population holding on to 37 per cent of the territory. Just as they can understand that the north is a monoethnic, and the south is home to all the other communities of Cyprus. We, too, often forget that Cyprus has more than just Greeks and Turks.

So no matter what kind of solution we go for- two states, confederal or federal we must engage in a communications campagin based on simple to understand facts and redraw the territorial map. When we do that we can figure out the rest of the details.
