Cyprus had extremists too,but some Turks want you to think all Greeks wanted to exterminate all Turks,I have had a few Turkish freinds myself that never voiced any hatred towards me or my family,so you can't go by these extremists on this forum,if you ever visit London you will see businesses run by both Greeks and Turks working together
Good! Hopefully amicable solutions are found that can be accepted by both sides

So you Turks have never commited any crimes then.

It's that attitude that partitioned the island in the first place!! The Turks have been there for over 500yrs. I'd say that makes it their home too!
There home is Mongolia.

What partitioned Cyprus is the British Refusal to allow the overwhelming Greek Majority to unite with Greece.

The 1960 agreement was forced on GC. It was never workable..Turks & Brits wanted it to fail.

Imagine what a great place Cyprus would be if the Turks left like in Crete or Rhodes...Turkey could even give the TC their own state in Southern Turkey!...the Turkish Republic of Southern Turkey!!!LOL

You need to spend some time with the Greek Nationalists in Melbourne.

A united Cyprus only can be if there were two different countries but same nation like east and west Germany.But in Cyprus two different nations and two different religions.I think there must be two seperate states.The World community have to stop the unhuman and unjustice embargo against the Turkish Cypriot nation.The Republic of Kosova is a good example.The Greeks joined Slobodan Milosevic and Serbian Fascists and in 1974 Greece was a military Junta a fascist state itself.It's time to say stop embargo.Even against Education&sports! This is against all the human rights in civilized World.

But when you commited a genocide against innocent Turkish Cypriots and massacred women,children and babies then you've to STFU and say sorry for the Greek Fascist military Junta regime and Grivas etc.BS.Then start to talk but not as an enemy.But now you're crying for 37 percent, on the other hand you want all the island alone.(Enosis)Is that your reality.If yes! Then be a man, take your gun and go to fight for your lands.U.N and Mr.K.Annan tried his best and Turkish Cypriots believed him.That's why they told "yes" for the unification.Tell me why Greek Cypriots lied everybody again? If that plan accepted by the Greek Cypriots.Many problems solved today which Greek Cypriots are complaining today.You can't win a war only with propaganda.Didn't you learn it.Look Turkish Army is there.Like British.But GCs want Russians and French.Don't forget "two wrongs don't make one right" cabbageman!Eat more original German sauerkraut,it's good for your brain.Guten apetit!
