Critical confrontation in Cyprus

ISTANBUL - 13.11.2014 11:08:55

Ever since the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) became a “global player,” it has no longer dealt with minor questions such as the Cyprus stalemate.
This is why these centuries-old questions are still very much in existence. Today we see that the northern province of the island of Cyprus represents, for Turkey, an economic, political, military and human fiasco. Until recently, relations with the southern part had been defined by begrudging support from Ankara to the recently resumed reunification talks, and all sorts of poor sportsmanship coming in the wake of the discovery of enough fossil fuel in the deep waters off Cyprus to provide an answer to all of Turkey's energy needs. But on Oct. 20, the Barbaros seismic vessel and its accompanying fleet carried this poor sportsmanship to a new dimension. What Ankara has done is, to quote columnist Niyazi Kızılyürek, expand the 40 years of land occupation into the sea. Ten days later, an Oct. 30 meeting of the Turkish National Security Council (MGK) took up the drilling activity in the Cypriot Republic's Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) as an item on its agenda. In a statement made after the MGK meeting, it was announced: “It has been clarified that in the future, Turkey will resolutely take every precaution necessary to protect its rights and interests in its own continental shelf, and that of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (KKTC) in licensed areas, in its capacity as a guarantor state.” Never mind that Turkey, according to the 1959 Zürich Agreement, is the guarantor, together with Greece and the UK, of the Republic of Cyprus. Its guarantor status for the KKTC has no international basis!
The declaration from the MGK occurred despite the fact that just 10 days prior, on Oct. 20, Cyprus had condemned the violation of its EEZ, indicating that it would be prepared to veto any positive developments in Turkey's ongoing EU accession talks as a result. Clearly, the MGK declaration completely discounts Cyprus's reaction. It also discounts the possible negative repercussions that might damage both the Cyprus reunification talks and the EU accession talks, ignoring the ex-officio sponsor of the Cyprus talks, the US. It also undermines neighboring countries such as Egypt, Greece and Israel, which also have EEZ's, while also failing to recognize the United Nations, which is in charge of the implementation of EEZ rules in the seas.
On the weekend following the MGK decision, the fleet sent out this salvo, “If we encounter any problems on this front, we will follow the rules of engagement.” What thus appeared before the world was the vision of a real toughie, one that recognizes no rule of law!
Many people cannot help wondering, in the face of such a frightening tableau, whether the ruling party is in pursuit of a cheap foreign victory -- that actually may come at great cost -- in the run up to the increasingly unclear general elections. Or perhaps more frighteningly, could the Turkish Armed Forces (TSK) be in pursuit of guaranteeing its perpetual presence on the island?
In the meantime, the bridges connecting Turkey to other actors it has ignored and tried to intimidate are about to burned. Ankara no longer seems to care a whit about accession talks with the EU. Disagreements with the US increase day by day. And its relations with four neighbors are in poor shape. Ankara does not recognize any country named Cyprus; its animosity toward Israel is endless. The word “Egypt” alone is enough to make the ruling party mad, while 15 years of supposedly thawing relations with Greece appear to have made no real concrete gains. And on top of everything, in the wake of the UN Security Council (UNSC) voting fiasco, Ankara's umbrage with the UN may in fact be greater than ever.
Nevertheless it appears that the other actors are not even really aware of Turkey's single-sided interventions. The freezing of Turkish accession talks is about to become an EU policy. As for the US, while it gives support to the Noble Energy Company, it appears to have given no priority to the temper of its “difficult ally,” Turkey. At the same time, Cyprus-Egypt-Greece have signed an important agreement on the storage of gas in Egypt, and a similar three-way agreement is about to be signed by Cyprus-Greece-Israel. Meanwhile, the Israeli foreign minister has issued a guarantee for Cyprus and ditto for Greece.
All this when, until just recently, the fossil fuels found off the southern waters of the island would have belonged to the entire island, had the island unified as the Federal Cypriot Republic. The water that is piped in from Anatolia would have been shared, the way forward in the EU accession talks would have been cleared, Turkish soldiers would have returned home, and then a peaceful atmosphere, so needed in the Eastern Mediterranean, would have settled into place.
This is a perfect case of how to end up a solitary toughie when looking to become a global player.

now do you see why it was wrong for the gc to start drilling without an agreement with the tcs first. but dont worry you will see it eventually even if it is after the war starts. people have gone to war for a lot less then what it is at stake.

knucklehead, if I really wanted your opinion I would have rattle my zip...the article is taken from Turkish sources and goes contra to your gibberish....refer to the bold and enlarged text and make sure you understand prior to opening your mouth and removing all doubt of your stupidity...for gods sake you lived and were educated in the UK most of your life and still having comprehension problems?...

the article states clearly turkey and the tcs have no business south of the island, and it goes further and says after a 40 year land occupation now the turks are seeking south of Cyprus sea occupation...

it nowhere mentions the parasites...or any wars or any fetish fantasies that circulate inside you non existent brain cells...

learn to read and comprehend for gods sake...

further more where was mighty turkey when the Syrians downed one of their planes?...huh?

all bark that's all it is...trying to create something out of nothing...

What a daft conclusion!

You’re basically saying that Turkey is stupid so we must therefore remain captive to her stupidity and never move forwards until further notice by her psychiatrist!

Well you and Turkey can get stuffed for all we care.

I told you before and I’ll remind you again that if push goes to shove at the very least, your useless community will cease to exist because there can NEVER be a Cyprus Problem again after that to continue.

That’s something that the National Council is unanimous about.

my deer fellows my education is not your concern, but kibris walking into danger should be yours. let me give a very brief history lesson.

in 1914 the germans were refused access to indian markets to sell pins. yes commonal garden pins. and two world wars have fought over it with millions murdered.

ignore sound advice all you like the danger is there like a tiger stalking its pray. if the the pray was intelligent then tiger would not have evolved.

my deer deer friends i happen to know kizilyurek personally and what he says and what any other reporter says is but one opinion each. and of course we all know that opinions are a bit like you two boys assholes. everybody has one.

as I said the turks ard trying to create something out of nothing...at the end she will do nothing....swallow her pride and blame everyone else with her bullshit...and the parasites as she calls them will moan and groan...

2...there is a large coalition against her
3...she is pissed of the yanks and russians
4....oil belongs to the eu to free her self from the russian dependence
5...etc...
