He said: The Cyprus problem is one of invasion and occupation.

I see where the shallowness comes from, and at the final minutes of the game. If the fore tyres go this slow, the rear ones in Southern Cyprus will not move at all.

This means the Cyprus problem is solved. Long live TRNC!..

P.D. Please remind me on 1st Jan. 2011 if I was right or wrong. I will be busy celebrating the New Year and something much more important...

I find his comments insulting. After 36 years, Greece has the audacity to insult the Cypriots with cheap words. Why wait that long, after Turkey has unpacked and settled for 36 to say something?
He is visiting with Christofias and was expected to say this but his words are more etiquette than truthful. Where was Greece when Turkey attacked and when Cypriots were dying? Where was Greece for all these years? Where the heck is the apology for hand delivering Cyprus to Turkey? Cyprus is treated the way it wants to be treated. Allowing Greece to betray it, attack it and then abandon it, in time of need. After all that and 36 years of inactions, Greece expresses love and support with few empty words at a speech as a guest of Cyprus and again the Cypriots feel happy that mommy still loves them. No resentment, no hard feelings just happy that Greece joined Cuba, Sudan and others to support the cause.
All talk and more coffee time, laughing at the expense of the Cypriots who are blind and ignorant of their true intentions.

Hi News, i find nothing unusaul or insulting that Greece supports a peaceful solution for Cyprus, infact the whole world wants a solution. With all due respect we cant hide the fact that it was an invasion indeed heavy handed ( disproportionate use of force). Now i stand my ground that the true victims in this war were the Cypriots and somebody has to take responsibility for their actions. This was a dirty war News and you know it with the only victors so far are the conspiracy theorists. What, how, why, and the list goes on but all i know is that our beutiful island is divided into two and there are people who believe it should remain like this because our diffrence in race and religion. News, support us and deep inside i know you do support a united Cyprus and the benefits it will bring to all of us.

Cyprus is one island for all of us to enjoy without resticted areas and the ugly barb wire between us.

I asked this before and repeat: Why did Greece separate from Turkey if you like living together with Turks that much? Why is the border between Turjey and Greece a necessity but luxury between Turks an Greeks in Cyprus? Not less important, why did Turkey lift visas to Greeks and to Greek Cypriots but not vice versa? Dont come to me with EU arguments because everybody knows that visa is a national sovereignty issue in the European Union. The Schengen Arrangement is between several European countries, some of which are members to EU and some others not.

Those countries who open their borders (I am not saying destroy them) to their neighbours, like Turkey, with all of its neighbours are more civilised than those who do not...

I agree with what you are saying but I still believe it is too late to just use words of support. There has to be more concrete support and more involvement by Greece and all others who claim they want a solution. Less talk, less promises and more action

I understand this is an anonymous forum and you feel you can say anything you want without accountability, but for heaven's sake, you are embarrassment to your compatriots. What school did you go to and did you grow up in the forest with Bambi? Are you serious that Turkey was not around before 1923 and who is the author of your books?

Thanks for your good wishes, Honey, you are really cute. I also wish you and Zara a happy bayram. Dont worry for us, our foreign currency reserves are almost double that of Australia and almost triple that of Spain. Thank God (the same one) this current economic crisis did not hit us hard. Indeed we are planning to buy an island and send the racists in the area thereto. We will also pay them lifetime pension..

Cyprus is greek. Hellas doesn't have to do nothing.

There will be unity with cyprus with mother Hellas you will see it.

As for you I suggest you worry why there's a million different languages in Sweden which are considered as legal in Sweden.

When someone challenges us eh let them have what they want.That is your motto eh?
