Yep!!! Can you smell the desparation???
Desperation ?, on whose part?, T/C or Turkey?.

For some one who wants peace in Cyprus desperately, as you say you do, what is your problem now?

After 35 years Turkey is willing to allow Greek Cyprus to use it's ports and prosper by it , dose your problem have any thing to do with T/C benefiting too, or to you T/Cs don't exist? or they don't count.

Talk about desperation, I can only see one side who is desperate
Just be thankful for Turkey warming up to 2 state federation,

By the way Turkey or the Turkish Cyprus do not expect Greek Cyprus to agree on Turkeys offer of peace finding,
They just like the world to hear Greek Cyprus saying NO!!!
Make up your mind please

TURKEY!!!! I have no probvlem with TC's benefiting!! I resent you saying that!! A two state federation?? What is it now then? I am pro unification!!
How are we desparate?? We are blocking Turkey's EU admission, we are blocking trade with the occupied north!! If the TC's want to live in a free country, they are welcome to come live in Free Cyprus!! In fact, my uncles neighbour in Paphos now has his family home in his posession!! TC's are our brothers!! Turkey is oppressin all of us!!!
My exact words desperately going after Turkey,

Topic says nothing about Turkey benefiting,

In fact Turkey has offered to help Greek Cyprus by opening her ports, in return she wants Turkish Cyprus to also benefit from free trade,

As I see it a step forward closer to peace, no benefit for Turkey , but many benefits for the Cypriots,
you feel Turkish Cypriots are your brothers, why don't you advocate for the embargoes to be lifted, give them a break,
instead you hold them to ransom to do what you want , not what they want,

Funny brotherly love don't you agree

98-90 per cent of the Islands resources were siezed by the Turkish army and given to the Turkish Cypriots in the 74 war,and the poor TCs are hurting and suffering? How could that be? Turks have all the fertile feilds,the Maesoria plain,the Citrus producing region of Morphou
All the industry,the City and port of Famagusta
Journalists reported seeing Buses were in numerous Turkish citiers with Greek alphabet on them and the Turks are having hardships? How?

This is ridiculous. South Cyprus trying to stop North Cyprus but sooner or later they will be recognised.

If not we can go on like that, just as we are doing since 1974.

Greek Cyprus does not need the use of Turkish ports to prosper...They are already prospering fine without the use of Turk ports...it is the Turk Cypriots who need to prosper, but Turkey is constantly breaking international law to keep the poor Turk Cypriots from prospering.
dose your problem have any thing to do with T/C benefiting too, or to you T/Cs don't exist? or they don't count.

"warming" Up??? LOL!!! Tureky's plans all along was to take the WHOLE island...and now after realizing that is impossible, they are "warming" to a two island states??? This is not warming but it is Turkish desperation to try to keep alive this false, illegal entity that only they have recognized...Turkey is desperate to enter ti EU...not the Cypriots.
