President Dervis Eroglu has said that the latest developments in the region indicated that the Cyprus negotiations process was coming back to life.
Speaking at a meeting yesterday, President Dervis Eroglu reminded that the Cyprus Turkish Side has been striving for years to reach a solution to the Cyprus Problem.
Complaining that the Turkish Cypriot people continue to be subjected to international embargoes despite being the side which has always said yes to all settlement plans, Eroglu said that the Cyprus Turkish Side was working towards bringing together the two states on the island under one roof.
Pointing out that the Cyprus problem was heating up, Eroglu said that this had become evident with the visit to him by the head of the UN Peacekeeping Operations Department Herve Ladsous.
“The Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan is meeting with the US President Barack Obama on the 16th. There is movement in the Middle East and there will be movement in the Cyprus negotiations process. We shall see if we can draw a roadmap when we meet on the 29th of May. It’s important where we start off. Anastasiadias had promised DIK'S O that it would scrap all previous convergences and start from the beginning” he added.

According to archaeological evidence, the civilisation of Cyprus goes back 11.000 years to the 9th millennium B.C.(early Neolithic Period or Stone Age). The island acquired its Greek character after it was settled by the Mycenaean-Achaean Greeks between the 13th and 11th century B.C. In the mid- 9th century B.C. Phoenician settlers began to arrive, concentrating mainly in the coastal city of Kition. Despite being conquered by many invaders Cyprus continued to prosper. Cypriot kingdoms were ruled by a succession of foreign invaders: after the Assyrians came the Egyptians and then the Persians (8th – 4th century B.C.). King Evagoras of Salamis (who ruled from 411-374 B.C.) unified Cyprus and made the island one of the leading political and cultural centres of the Greek world.
The city-kingdoms of Cyprus welcomed Alexander the Great, King of Macedonia, and Cyprus became part of his empire. After the rivalries for succession between Alexander's generals, Cyprus eventually came under the Hellenistic state of the Ptolemies of Egypt and from then on was part of the Greek Alexandrine world (310 - 30 B.C.). The Ptolemies abolished the city-kingdoms and unified Cyprus. Pafos became the capital.

The Ottoman Empire under the leadership of Sultan Selim I (1512-20) conquered the Mameluk Empire centred in Egypt in early 1571. At this time, although Cyprus was occupied and governed by Venetian lords, they paid an annual tribute to the Mameluk Sultan in recognition of his suzerainty. Following the Ottoman victory in Egypt, the Venetians paid their annual tribute directly to the Sultan in Istanbul. However, Sultan Süleyman I (1520-66), threatened by Venetian fortifications of Cyprus and the piracy in the seas surrounding Cyprus and the eastern Mediterranean, began military preparations towards removing the Venetian lords from Cyprus. Nevertheless, these efforts never materialized into a full-scale operation before Süleyman I's death.

Most people know that the Parthenon in Athens was a pagan temple. Fewer know that it was also, at one time, a mosque. Islam came to Greece at the invitation of the Byzantine Empire to curb the Serbs and thus the Muslims stayed for over 500 years and as late as 1913, 40 percent of the population of Macedonia was Muslim and in many parts of Thrace, Greek-Islamic architecture is clearly visible. There are many different Muslim ethnic groups in Greece, namely the Pomaks, ethnic Turks, certain Roma groups, Greek Muslims and recently new immigrants from across the Muslim world. Today, up to 20% of Cyprus is Muslim.

Prime Minister Irsen Küçük has evaluated his contacts in the United States to waiting reporters. Küçük referred to his discussions with the UN officials during the New York leg of his contacts in the United States and said that the UN is in full consensus with the Cyprus Turkish Side on the view that the year 2013 creates the best opportunity to resolve the Cyprus problem.

Prime Minister Küçük said that they have observed the fruitful outcome of their initiatives on the Cyprus issue while holding discussions with the UN Under-Secretary General for Political Affairs Jeffrey Feltman, noting that they will maintain with such positive initiatives in Europe as well.

The Premier also stressed the need for the Greek Cypriot Side to focus on the possible benefits of a settlement instead of presenting its economic problems as an excuse to delay the negotiations.

“During my contacts in Washington, I called on the US officials to adopt a more effective role in order to encourage the Greek Cypriot Side towards a solution” he said.

Küçük also said that the TRNC is working in full cooperation with motherland Turkey in its peaceful efforts and noted that Turkey, as a country which is focusing on the solution of internal and regional conflicts, can’t be insensitive on the Cyprus issue.

Funny how you will never condemn what the Turks did , ever! Tell us what the Turks did to the GC's that lived in the North in 1974 in the dead of night? Talk about being a loser?!! Why do you beg to be some fake ass Turk wannabe? I dont hate who I am, you on the other hand clearly hates being British. Is that why you suck up to the Turks 24/7? Or is that ur just ashamed to admit that ur a Turk?
