I know what you mean Sophia, I get so frustrated when I’m attempting to have a conversation in Greek but I just can’t think of certain words that are pretty crucial to what I’m trying to say. And the sounding like a lemon part isn’t so great either… :?

...in my village they called me the little turk, because i grew up in Canada.

i still get that, because I am one of those Cypriots with dark skin.

there is only one nation and unoficially a pseudo province, and soon to be a full fledge province.

...if we respect our Constitution, there will be a Unitary State, and if it is reformed there will be two National Assemblies, instead of the non existant Communal Chamber.

...if we wish for free association, mobility, and expression, each of the two National Assemblies will have their Jurisdiction over a sum of parts, which will make up two "Zones", rather than two "Halves".

References to "Greek Cyprus" are part of the Turkish propaganda that wants to divide Cyprus between Greek and Turkish parts. There is no "Greek Cyprus" and there is no "Turkish Cyprus". There is just one Cyprus, the Republic of Cyprus, part of which is illegally under occupation by a foreign country.

There is only one Cyprus and it is a Cypriot Cyprus, where all of us are Cypriots without this means that we should all be exactly the same. Each one of us can have its own ethnic background, and religion and there is nothing wrong with that.


dont forget if TC s wasnt in the island, Cyprus would be a part greece. so if there is a republic of cyprus that is because TC s are in the island

so the GC's failed at Enosis with Greece but the TC's have managed a perfect Enosis with Turkey, course no one has a say about this.

All excuses are cancelled as of tonight. Christofias is the new president and he is firmly committed to BBF and full respect of TC rights. So now let us see the expressions of sincerity of the other side.

There is no sincerity Nikitas, they are pushing for partition and recognition of the occupied area of Cyprus as trnc.

Not everything is about power, surely culture comes into the equasion. And then there is a vast difference between north & south Cypriots.

There are no "north & south" Cypriots. There are just Cypriots/EU Nationals, migrants and illegal immigrants.
