I'm an outsider but it sounds like the Greek wanted a coup so the turks as a guarantee power came to protect the turks and both sides did war crimes during war and now turkey overextended it's mandate

There can be no reunification - South Cyprus can join Greece if they want it but North Cyprus will be always Turkey - North Cyprus or Turkey there is no difference.

looking at you would have to say the coup against makarios was not backed by the greek cypriots. the coup was orchestrated by the cia and turkey with the junta in greece. under the geneva agreement 1960 of independence uk greece or turkey could restore a proper government if anything like a coup arose. the turks had threatened 2 invade before. do you honestly believe greek cypriots would want to challenge a mighty turkey when they had paradise as their home and to leave it 2 become a living hell after the invasion. a plot in which the uk played its part in appeasing turkey while still keeping their bases for their own and usa interests un the region. a complete sham.

turkey was always going to invade cyprus snd annexe her.. the coup to overthrow makariod was orchestrated by the cia so the usa could have a foothold on yhe island and also allow it to become part of turkey. britain sat back as a guatantor and helped over the years with a divide and rule policy over the two peoples. greece was guilty in its part for encouraging union with cyprus for its own gains and american dollars.. cyprus is for cyrpriots greek and turkish who are the biggest losers in this tragedy of greed treachery and betrayal fuelled by nationalism for the interests of the west and its friends in the region. the middle east is in chaos as the wesr wants this so as to protect their own interests in the region cyprus is a pawn in a much bigger hame being played out.

Let's have peace, says both sides. Just give us the land, learn our language, make free housing for hundred thousands of our citizens, let us have majority in parliament, the president be one of ours, the army be controlled by us, and then we can all live happily ever after. You see how outrages the Turks are for not accepting peace? If only we did. Then we can all live happily ever after just like we used to live before 1978 when the bad bad Turks invaded the island and stopped all the fun the Greeks were having. Ah, those were the days. When the people who talk of peace now (UK for example) would not even lift a finger to save the lives of innocents just a few kilometers away. Why can't we go back to those times? And let's get the terrorist organization Golden Dawn as the ruler of Greece as well, and just give Istanbul and Izmir to Greece as well. I wonder, if Turks did 1/100th or spoke in 1/10th of the rhetoric that the Greeks speak in and the crimes they do. I just wonder how many freedom loving peaceful nations would throw how many nukes towards our direction. A reliance on Greeks would only lead to us becoming second rate citizens. Anyone who loves such a idea so much should venture to the south sometimes. Let us see how many days it takes till someone breaks all of your car's windows.
All the world is watching the island crises between Turkey and Greece. Some years ago..Greece invaded 18 islands of Turkey. How they won't invade the Turkish side of Cyprus?? You can check old world maps.. and see the reality.. they belongs to Turkey officially!! From Lozan!! Anyone who doesn't believe about 18 islands issue pls it's easy to check it.. And now Greece flags and armies there.

why doesn't anyone ever talk about the real issue which created this problem. in the 60 the Greeks kick out the Turkish Cypriot community from government and then started butchering the Turks. Kidnapping, mass graves, rape etc. we were forced to live in enclaves for decades as second class citizens. the Greeks were on a missions of unification with Greece enosis. exspanding the hellnic influence and was racially motivated. Turkey stepped in stopped the killing and separated the two communities. good work. no more blood shed. you lot who know nothing making inappropriate comments based on the biased European media should take another look and see what really happened. to this day we feel under threat and that's why the Turkish army should be present for our protection so that no more Turkish Cypriot are killed in the future. never forget that they drew there sword first and lost. now they have a huge chip on their shoulders

I am a Greek Cypriot. Why is everyone fighting here?. both sides are you blame. Greeks refusal to acknowledge that's the Turkish Cypriots have right and Turkish refusal to adjust territory.
soon as the reunite cyprus another war will happen..turks and greeks do not get along and will never get along and as soon as u reunite the 2 a war will start again..

Erdogan and Boris Mehmet think that moslems can enter the E.U. via Cyprus with negotiations but we in the E.U. believe that we have the military might needed for a military solution to Cyprus....E.U. is strong enough to push all Turks out of Europe...Erdogan is not going to screw us !

Ey Türk Gençliği! Birinci vazifen, Türk istiklâlini, Türk Cumhuriyetini, ilelebet, muhafaza ve müdafaa etmektir. Mevcudiyetinin ve istikbalinin yegâne temeli budur. Bu temel, senin, en kıymetli hazinendir. İstikbalde dahi, seni bu hazineden mahrum etmek isteyecek, dahilî ve haricî bedhahların olacaktır. Bir gün, İstiklâl ve Cumhuriyeti müdafaa mecburiyetine düşersen, vazifeye atılmak için, içinde bulunacağın vaziyetin imkân ve şerâitini düşünmeyeceksin! Bu imkân ve şerâit, çok nâmüsait bir mahiyette tezahür edebilir. İstiklâl ve Cumhuriyetine kastedecek düşmanlar, bütün dünyada emsali görülmemiş bir galibiyetin mümessili olabilirler. Cebren ve hile ile aziz vatanın, bütün kaleleri zaptedilmiş, bütün tersanelerine girilmiş, bütün orduları dağıtılmış ve memleketin her köşesi bilfiil işgal edilmiş olabilir. Bütün bu şerâitten daha elîm ve daha vahim olmak üzere, memleketin dahilinde, iktidara sahip olanlar gaflet ve dalâlet ve hattâ hıyanet içinde bulunabilirler. Hattâ bu iktidar sahipleri şahsî menfaatlerini, müstevlilerin siyasi emelleriyle tevhit edebilirler. Millet, fakr ü zaruret içinde harap ve bîtap düşmüş olabilir. Ey Türk istikbalinin evlâdı! İşte, bu ahval ve şerâit içinde dahi, vazifen; Türk İstiklâl ve Cumhuriyetini kurtarmaktır! Muhtaç olduğun kudret, damarlarındaki asil kanda mevcuttur! M.Kemal.ATATÜRK
