open all borders

How can we solve it? (keep it civilized)

open all borders

I have had a lot to criticise Papadopoulos for in the past couple of months. I don't take any of it back, I don't believe he wished to negotiate and was happy to reject Annan Plan like it was nothing to do with him.

I have been critical also of the lack of effort since April 24.

I recently heard a proposal to open more borders, mine clearing etc. These will not in themselves resolve Cyprus problem, just as Denktas opening the border one year ago didn't. I am surprised Talat has rejected this and pleased to read I am not alone in being crtitical of Talat. If we can't have agreed solution, the next best thing would be measures such as this, as in themselves they bring us closer together. This may reopen old wounds for some, it will also cut through the propoganda for others.

What is Talat's motive?

I believe he is getting directions from Ankara. Maybe before he got elected he was somewhat different (you tell us), but I guess after he was elected they made clear to him in Ankara what he can and what he can not do.

Talat explained his reasons why he didn't want more gates to being opened...

He stated that GC administration didn't allow TC lorries, busses, Taxis etc pass through the gates and added that T-Pap should firstly solve this problem then open more gates...

Though in my opinion this is not a friendly reaction...

If I were Talat I'd say: Of coarse, it would be good for benefit of our communities... but we also should solve the restrictions problem of TC lorries, busses, Taxis etc...
