Cyprus dispute – Turkish PM Davutoglu – Cyprus could be reunified immediately


Turkish PM Davutoglu

Cyprus could be reunified immediately

Intro by Ralph Kratzer

Oh my god! How many more meetings should there be until it finally comes to an agreement? How many more words should be spoken? If the politicians of Turkey, Greece, Northern Cyprus and South Cyprus are really interested in a solution, now there should be an end to words and it should be followed by action! I think that all Cypriots are tired now! Most of them want a solution acceptable to both sides, they want a future together or even not together, but finally an end of discussions!

That´s what I found today in the Greek Cypriot “Cyprus Mail”:

Davutoglu_3Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu on Tuesday blamed the Greek Cypriot [GC] side for the lack of a solution to the island’s division and suggested that Cyprus could be reunified immediately.

Speaking during a visit to the Turkish occupied northern part of the island [TRNC], Davutoglu suggested the Turkish side had always showed good will but the Greek side did not reciprocate.

“We wanted Turkey, Greece, the TRNC and the Greek Cypriot administration to sit around the same table and think how they can turn the eastern Mediterranean into a region of peace,” the Turkish premier said. “But no matter how strong a good will did we display, unfortunately there was no equivalent response.”

Davutoglu said now was the time for action, saying time was being wasted.

“The national council in the Greek Cypriot side makes decision-making difficult,” he said, inviting [GC president] Anastasiades to join them in resolving the issue.

“Come and let us make peace today, not tomorrow, this week, not the next, this year, not next year,” he added.

Davutoglu invited his Greek counterpart Antonis Samaras to join him in visiting the island’s two communities and have tea together.

He also urged the US and Britain to contribute in resolving the matter.

“Let us become an example for other crises,” he said.

But if Anastasiades cannot do this, he should say so.

“Either join us in finding a solution or let us lift the embargo and think of alternatives. We will never leave the Turkish Cypriots alone. This is our message,” the prime minister said.

The [GC] government condemned Davutoglu’s visit and questioned its timing, as well as that of Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan at the beginning of the month.

[GC president] Anastasiades was scheduled to have dinner with Turkish Cypriot leader Dervis Eroglu on Tuesday while Erdogan arrived a few days before the new UN envoy’s first visit to Cyprus.

If Davutoglu and Turkey really desire a solution to the Cyprus problem they must abandon their unacceptable positions – including the recognition of the breakaway state – once and for all, [GC] government spokesman Nicos Christodoulides said.

“The least Turkey can do if it really desires a solution to the Cyprus problem is to respond to [GC] president Anastasiades’ proposal for the return of the closed-off town of Varosha to its lawful residents,” he said. “Turkey must do a lot if it really desires a solution.”

German Minister of State Roth:

“It is the right time for a solution”

Germany’s Minister of State in charge of European Union Affairs – Michael Roth stressed the importance of reaching European Union logoa bi-zonal, bi-communal federal solution in Cyprus based on political equality. In an interview before his Cyprus visit which is going to take place between 17-19 September, Roth called on both sides in Cyprus to continue to work hard to bring the negotiations to a success.

Stating that UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon’s Special Advisor on Cyprus – Espen Barth’s first contacts in the island raised hopes, Roth said “it is the right time for a solution”.

I was not able to attend the NCCCT coffee morning at The Lodge when Wedding dressthe popular monthly event was resumed on 9th September but Chris went along to give support on behalf of cyprusscene.com and Angela Hasman, Chairperson, has kindly provided me with the results of this event.

Angela asked Chris if he would take a photograph of a beautiful wedding dress which has been donated to NCCCT in order for it to be promoted and sold to raise further funds.  The dress is size 10, off the shoulder, with a sequined bodice and has beautiful cascading silk swirls and waves from the waist and there is also a veil.  Anyone wanting to make a sensible offer should call Barbara or Ron on 0533 838 4210 to discuss their interest.

Chris was also introduced to Mike Arnold who Mike Arnold, Carole Lloyd, Angela Hasmanwas making a donation to Carole Lloyd and Angela Hasman.  Mike, who has had a pacemaker fitted, had been challenged to an Ice Bucket Challenge but he decided he preferred to make his donation to a North Cyprus charity without taking the risk of the shock to his system that the Ice Bucket Challenge might invite.

Mike is no stranger to being challenged to enter this type of event and he showed us a picture taken some years ago when he participated in a similar event.

StallsAs normal, the coffee morning was a huge success with about 100 people attending which is very good for the first coffee morning of the season. Cakes were provided by Mehmet from the Committee and NCCCT send many thanks to all who supported the event and also to the staff and management of The Lodge for allowing the use of the premises and providing the tea and coffee.

The grand sum of 1962TL was raised including the 100TL donation from Mike Arnold.

The date and venue of the October coffee morning will be confirmed as soon as possible and will be published as an article on cyprusscene,com and also entered in our Weekly Events Calendar.
