...and it seems that Turkey also has a border with Israel.

indeed, this Palestinian Ambassador may care little about Cyprus' support, because she is small, Turkey is much, much larger. And the oil (if it is there) is most alluring.

...this meddling is not new. Let's remember that the Palestinians are members in the East Med. Gas Forum, with Israel, and all its coastal neighbours, already. While Libya is also divided on the same lines as Turkey for their "Brotherhood", joining is short sighted, and hypocritical, what with the kind of International support Palestinians need themselves. Cyprus is the key to regional hegemony. Palestianians may also play an important role. The success of this is only amplified to the players who find Turkey to be a threat to them all. Why else has Erdogan done so much to bring, in affect, so much pressure focused on Cyprus, what is its EEZ; an end to them?

Who among his neighbours trusts Erdogan as a replacement for what is a balance of power they have not disrupted as he is doing, that they have reinforced?

...indeed, it is a fine line; let's hope the Palestinian Ambassador to Ankara means well, toward Turkey, and in the context of Palestine's relations with the rest of the world.

It is hard to believe that Palestinians would support the oppression of an oppressed People; such a betrayal toward Cyprus will leave them isolated, and dependent on Turkey's efforts for herself alone.

“During the period, unilateral actions in sensitive areas near or in the buffer zone caused levels of political tension not seen in Cyprus in years.”

Unficyp observed several incidents of threatening behaviour and on March 9, it noted the the first physical act of aggression against Unficyp since 1996 during demonstrations over the closed checkpoints.

“Three Unficyp police officers suffered minor injuries as members of the Turkish Cypriot police and security personnel entered a disputed section of the buffer zone and proceeded to physically push United Nations police personnel deeper into the zone.”


The secretary-general also described challenges to the status quo due to actions by Turkish forces on the northern ceasefire line as well as moves by military personnel in disputed sections of the buffer zone.

Increased military and police presence were noted along the southern ceasefire line, officially linked to irregular migration, the report noted.

In total, 152 status quo violations were recorded in the special status area of Strovilia, as well as hardening stance of the Turkish forces vis-à-vis Unficyp, over the checkpoint constructed by the Turkish Cypriot side in 2019 resulting “in the near permanent presence of an additional Turkish forces soldier in Strovilia, occupying a separate military position, which continued to be recorded as a violation.”

Mention was also made of the incident at the Spitfire Café in the buffer zone after Nicosia municipality crews were met with Turkish forces and in turn prompted the Cypriot National Guard’s presence “bringing the two opposing forces in proximity to one another in the buffer zone.”


Tensions were also noted in Avlona, due to unauthorizsd farming activity in Avlona and Dhenia.

“Tensions were the most acute in Avlona, where unauthorised farming activity resulted in move forward violations by the Turkish forces and, at times serious, tensions between civilians.”


The report urged more systematic reliance on the bicommunal technical committees, with appropriate political and technical support from the sides, which “could enable the committees on economy, crisis management, health, humanitarian affairs and others to play a constructive role in these uncommon circumstances as the aftershock of Covid-19 on Cyprus calls for even greater practical cooperation than before.”

Cyprus Question is a conflict created by the unlawful use of force by Turkey against Cyprus,

...well said.

But Turkey's plaint is not with Cyprus per se, the Problem is bigger than that.

What about the open hostilities with all his neighbours, what about the disruptive behaviour toward good order, like UNCLOS, what about his maximalist demands, not just superiority but supremacy over the Aegean as well? (Never mind his threats toward the EU, or his relations for/with the "Brotherhood".) He seems serious, when once he was quoted as saying that he has, "tossed out the window", the Treaty of Lausanne.

...this is the Problem.

Indeed a solution can be found, in Cyprus, in effect the "new" Turkey Erdogan is looking for. One way or another, for the People, or for "Turkishness", he may make a Legacy that will outlive him. It is his choice to consider what a BBF means, and he must realise that as in Cyprus, if it is torn apart, Turkey will be torn apart; he may find himself saying of the Flag of Cyprus, that it is no different to his own, representing one Country, and where as Persons they may demonstrate their own goodwill toward the minorities which (respectively) live among them.

Turkish Imam demands invasion of Cyprus for the sake of Islam and Mohammed’s aunty

...yes it boils down to "that". Talking about "Blue Homeland", Cyprus is an "occupied territory"; "Greeks" living on it.

...Varosha, the beach to be opened, so it is said. DISY makes a video as though more sympathy, internationally, will solve the Problem,

https://cyprus-mail.com/2020/10/07/disy ... ith-video/

my comment,

DISY should be looking to Turkish Cypriots, against this injustice. Just like the "Greek"/Greek divide, Cypriots who are Turkish represent about half the population of the "Cypriot Turk" regime.

...who represents Cypriots, as Cypriots i ask? Who will give Turkish Cypriots their support against this unnatural divide? All "Turks" may support these illegal acts in Varosha, but Turkish Cypriots do not.

I had hopes with AKEL's win, their Turkish Cypriot candidate now Cyprus' MEP, that it would change what is the electoral frontier forever. But then again, i still have hope that those silenced for so many years will represent themselves, by demonstrating under their Flag, rightfully theirs, the Flag of Cyprus, if their leadership will not.

...who remembers "Asiktir Turkiye"? It was not so long ago. (Or, the Occupy Movement which put Cyprus, and Cypriots, first.)

Cypriots (again) could join together, this time around. The People (despite the Leaders) always have this power.

..."Greekness", like "Turkishness" represent the same side of the coin, in Cyprus. Cypriots, Greek and Turkish, represent the other. It is not so hard to understand, yet for decades such a notion has been dismissed because it would mean overcoming the fear within ourselves as Cypriots, in recognising this as fact.

..."right wing", being Conservative, does not mean "being Greek" (or "being Turkish"): Cypriot lives matter.

The world can do nothing in practical terms for Cypriots. Cypriots (collectively) could do more with a Leadership that has a mind that speaks to, and for, all of them. DISY, and AKEL, both fail Cypriots in this regard.

"...based on its merits, on what basis is this "Turkish" regime equal to the Republic?

I am waiting for Mr. Tatar to suggest that the EU should open membership, to him, as well.

...and there are still the resolutions, quite clear, from the UN, and from the World itself: a Cyprus exists.

...so too Cypriots, let's not forget.

If Tatar does not fight for Turkish people, but, for "Turkishness", he will not find his adversary among the few, as Turkish Cypriots are seen, but the many, once Greeks and Turks who are Cypriot realise, what is "the change in mentality" that is needed; that while "Greeks" and "Turks" may exist, they are the same, and no different. Such as it is for Cypriots, Turkish and Greek, they too are the same, as equals no different.

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu may reconsider his position on Cypriots, as a Guarantor to this State, and to a Future where Turks, those not "Turkish", can see in the Turkish Republic equality, respect for minorities, and beyond Freedom, in Liberty, their existence as Turkish Constituencies as well.", my comment as submitted.

Don't talk about war.
This is not the 1970's
Times have changed.

Without Cyprus, if it is left impotent torn in two, Turkey rules the sea.

Oil and Gas exploration, its exploitation, in my mind, is a secondary prize, to having the power to make all Marine, and Maritime traffic, West of the Suez, all the way to Italy, and South to a frontier with Egypt, Turkey’s domain. Isn’t this the result of accepting Turkey’s demands, on “her” Continental Shelf?


the article is worth reading, i include it for the record, and the map.
