EU Minister Egemen Bagıs has called on the Greek Cypriot administration to give a clear reaction on a reported incident of desecration of the Turkish flag, as he also suggested that this action could be part of a campaign by extremists against the newly elected Greek Cypriot leader, Nicos Anastasiades, who is known for his conciliatory attitude on the Cyprus issue.

“Of course, burning the flag is not their place. We expect the Greek Cypriot Administration of Southern Cyprus to give a very clear reaction to those who burned the flag,” Bağı&#35 1; told reporters March 29 in response to questions about a report that said Greek Cypriots had burned a Turkish flag waved by a person holding French passport among a crowd lined up outside of banks in bailed-out Greek Cyprus.

Bağı&#35 1; indicated that protection of the Turkish flag’s honor must be an issue also for Greek Cypriots since Turkish Cypriots have been providing them with electricity and water when needed.“But I particularly consider this an effort by deep centers that want to put Anastasiades in a difficult position,” he said, noting how Anastasiades had supported a U.N.-led 2004 reunification plan for the island. Bağı&#35 1; also lent support to Economy Minister Zafer Çağlayan, who recently urged the European Union to restructure the terms of the current Customs Union, or cancel the Customs Union altogether and make a separate free trade deal with Turkey.

And I'm quite sure that the same would happen if someone were foolish enough to unfurl a Gayreek flag on our side, read between the news headlines folks, the guy obviously has "Issues" and was saved by the Police from the crowd.
Went across yesterday, aside from security at a few of the large branches of banks , many smaller branches carrying on as if normal, the one thing that did stick out were the hoards of media expecting riot conditions, finding instead the Cypriot lifestyle, Yavas, Yavas !
The difference was he wasn't shot dead. But scum like you defend and mock the murders of Issak and Solomos by the Turkish grey wolves and police.

This just shows that Greek Cypriots can't live with Turkish Cypriots. Its time everyone was a realist!!!

Greek Cypriots LOVE the Republic of Greece flag. BUT THEY ABSOLUTELY HATE THE REPUBLIC OF TURKEY FLAG!!!

Greek Cypriots don't like Turkish immigration to North Cyprus but they don't mind huge amounts of Orthodox Christian immigration in South Cyprus. They don't mind at least immigrants from Greece, Ukraine, Russia, Romania and Bulgaria!

Can't people see Greek Cypriot hypocrisy!!!

A TWO STATE SOLUTION APPEARS TO BE THE BEST SOLUTION!!!

If two parties to a conflict can't even come to an agreement on the most basic points that they've been 'debating' for the past 40 years then its time to just wake up and say OK we are never going to agree because we have irreconcilable differences.

They also make conspiracy theories all the time and blame everyone else for their own problems of their own making!!!

Greeks and Turks live side by side as friends and neighbors in many countries,Britain for example,all my relatives have Turkish neighbors they are friends with even attend their weddings
In Brooklyn NY they both live in a certain section,Canada,Australia ,countries in S America like Brazil
Your Military leaders in Turkey don't want to let go of Cyprus as the British did for military reasons
You just have a dim,fanatical view of things,You sound like you can't handle whatever it is your drinking and you are pounding away at a Computer keyboard to vent.Try Alcoholics Anonymous and seek help

That maybe the case in foreign countries but IT WOULDN'T WORK IN CYPRUS ON THE GROUND!!!

It also works because Turks and Greeks abroad avoid talking about politics and history!!! They talk about football and celebrity BS stuff. Things would turn very sour very quickly if they did talk about politics!!! Imagine some Greek and Turkish families having a Barbecue and then a Greek is like 'Turks out of Cyprus!' you think they will have a friendly enjoyable time?!?!

See Cyprus history 1960- 19 July 1974!!!!

See Greek Cypriot Orthodox leader and his statements on foreigners and Turks!!!

Greek Cypriots are indoctrinated by their Church to hate Turkish Cypriots!!!

Greek Cypriots have the Republic of Greece flag all over their country!!! Is that an American conspiracy too!!!

But Greek Cypriots claim they don't want ENOSIS, which try try and blame on NATO (which Greece is part of!!!)

Greek Cypriots hate the Republic of Turkey! But they love the Republic of Greece! They hate Turkish immigration to northern Cyprus but don't mind over 100,000 Greek, Bulgarian and Russian Orthodox immigrants to South Cyprus!!!

Greek Cypriots LOVE EOKA!!! But Turkish Cypriots HATE EOKA!!! I'm just being a realist here!!! Sorry if you don't agree or have a different view. I just think there are irreconcilable differences.

Greek Cypriots haven't come up with any peace plan in 40 years!!! A peace deal with North Cyprus is a step BACKWARDS for them!!!!

Ever stop to think the reason they don't talk to you Turks is because they are simply assholes like yourself?.And Politics has nothing to do with it?
And WE DO OWN EVERYTHING IN THE NORTH IT WAS STOLEN FROM US BY FORCE

who says i live in London ,Brussels or Girne, but i know what I see , and by the way am not a Turk
This means i live in 3 different cities and see very well what happens ,not like you i presume

about the invasion of 74 it must be the Turkish army that killed the Turkish Cypriots and chucked their bodies in the wells.

I heard the real story not so long ago

Rodger P. Davies

The U.S. ambassador to Cyprus under the Ford administration, Davies was killed by sniper fire during a demonstration against American policy by Greek Cypriots at the embassy in Nicosia on Aug. 19, 1974. Davies’ secretary, Antoinette Varnava, was also killed.

When Greece won their war of independence against the Ottomans with lots of European help an then Greeks exterminated every Turk in the Peloponnesus.

Turks and even Greek Muslims were Genocided against in Crete before a few of them were rescued.

When Italy gave the Dodecanese Islands to Greece in 1947 they never gave many of the Turks citizenship. So Turks were forced out of the islands that they've called home for centuries.

An estimated 60,000 Turks were denaturalised because of laws that discriminated against ethnic Turks only (ethnic Greeks were not affected). Basically if a Turk went abroad they were denaturalised! But Greeks could leave and return as they pleased.

Greeks claim and celebrate a "Greek genocide" in Turkey but the truth is 1.5 million out of a pre-war population of 1.8 million of Greeks were exchanged for the Turks in what we called "Northern Greece" today. "Northern Greece" barely had any Greeks in it in the early 20th cenutury. Greece colonised "Northern Greece" with Greek immigrants from Anatolia.

thank you , Some Turkish Dude

I presume our Greek friends forgot about this, like they forget about a lot of other genocides.

For our Greek friends ,
this is one of the reasons why Ataturk did the exodus of the Greeks out of Turkey.

From where came the stone ??
