Status Quo solutions

How can we solve it? (keep it civilized)

Status Quo solution

The 'TRNC' becomes a recognised state with existing borders but all refugees have the right to return and become full citizens with voting rights
0
No votes
The 'TRNC' returns 17-20% of Cyprus back to the RoC and gets recognised. Refugees in the returned land can get their land back.
2
67%
A return to full political participation by the Turkish Cypriots in the RoC including Turkish Cypriot MP's and Turkish Cypriot Vice president in a dual role alongside their 'TRNC' roles.

Status Quo solutions

I tried to think of some 'Status Quo' based solutions to the Cyprus problem. I think option 3 would be pretty interesting. Don't know if it would work though.

Also, I just watched both of these documentaries. I found them both pretty one-sided. Was wondering whether anybody agreed or disagreed.

I choose the 4th option, i.e. none of the above. :wink:

I agree. But which option is the least repulsive for you and why? Or which is the worst option of the three?

For me personally, having the Turkish Cypriot representatives in the RoC makes the TRNC redundant. Can't understand why you don't support it.

Panikos, it is not about what we wish. It is about a suggestion that has a realistic chance of being supported by both communities. It would be a blessing if we could go back to the 1960 constitution but unfortunately this cannot happen after the events of 1974.

Option 2 is the only realistic way forward to a solution.

I actually think that it is the ONLY WAY to solve the CP. Return to the 1960 constitution with amendments.
It is an option the Kibrislis have, and WILL use it when they have no other choice. Even VP has confirmed it in the past.
Haven't you VP?

All three options are incompatible with long-term peace; hence, they are not status quo solutions.

What about Turkey Pyrpolyser? It simply isn't on, unless we can enforce it, but if we could, we would probably opt for something else. Rather, if we thought we could.

If you see it that way then Turkey will not accept anything which is worst for them than what they have now. So anything that Turkey will accept will be better for them and worst for us. So as long as Turkey has a say nothing can be better for us than the status quo!
