indeed, progress...

“Leaders and representatives of Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot political parties are convinced that the time has come for official actions on behalf of the two communities in honour of the missing people of both communities” the declaration goes on.

“In this direction, they call upon the two leaders to consider (a) the construction of common monument and (b) to declare a joint Commemoration Day, both dedicated to the memory of victims of the Cyprus conflict, Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots” it is noted.


...so many years divided may end with simple acts like these.

The visit was organised with the assistance of the non-governmental bi-communal Association of Relatives of Missing Persons and Victims of War “TOGETHER WE CAN”.

...for the missing, the dead, and the families which survive them, this is a big step.

If we do not recognise these, our fallen, as Cypriots: we fail them, they die in vain; we fail ourselves, as Cypriots never Free.

...you forget Maximus, on the subject of the missing: who was murdered and made to disappear were Cypriot; for "being" Cypriot, victims.
...that's the point; there is no "Greek" or "Turkish" in being Cypriot while we may be Greek and Turkish: there is this difference.

Paphitis wrote:“Greeks” or “Turks”, Greeks or Turks, “Cypriots” or Cypriots?

Should we just all make “butter” or butter?


...better than making ''guns'', don't you think?

Excavations are currently underway for Greek Cypriots who went missing in 1974, in the villages of Gerani, Sysklipos, Hamit Mantres and Assia (military zone) and for Turkish Cypriots who went missing in 1964 in Strovolos.

Two Greek Cypriots missing from the 1974 Turkish invasion have been identified using DNA testing since the beginning of the year, the Committee of Missing Persons said on Monday.


...work in Kythrea starts today.
