President Mustafa Akinci and President Nicos Anastasiades met with U.N. Special Adviser for Cyprus, Espen Barth Eide, and said that they would continue to protect the “positive” atmosphere for a two-society and two-region federation. During this meeting they agreed on 5-steps they believe showed progress in the talks. Some time in the future they were going to:
- open more crossing points;
- interconnect their power grids;
- allow mobile phone interoperability on both sides of the island;
Tuesday’s hearing in the trial of Koray Basdogrultmaci and Cinel Senem Husseyin was marred by the presence of an estimated 100 of the Turkish group known as the Grey Wolves. Their presence was allegedly threatening and disruptive, necessitating a large police presence outside Famagusta court.
According to Detay newspaper (27.05.15) the Grey Wolves were protesting against the Koray Basdogrultmaci and his wife Senem Sunel, who were fined for flying the south’s flag outside their home and shop in Famagusta.
According to the newspaper, the protesters were holding the flags of Turkey and......
It is interesting to note that the Cyprus Mail, to celebrate its 70th anniversary, is releasing its archives going back to its foundation in 1945. This will include:
‘the last gasps of British colonial rule, Cyprus’ truncated independence, the coup and Turkish invasion, and the decades of negotiations to stitch the divided island back together…articles dedicated to the 1950s struggle for ENOSIS.’
What will we learn? What will history teach us? More importantly, what would those involved in the current Cyprus Talks learn from......
We love Park Resorts! Especially the sites at Park Resorts Camber Sands and Park Resorts Isle of Wight, including the cost of the ferry. We’ve recently returned from a 4 day break which cost us only £49. Not each, £49 in total. We had a three bed well equipped self catering accommodation including free entertainment passes. The kitchen would put some household kitchens to shame. Bring your pets as well, don’t leave them at home. Click an offer below.

Just when you think you have heard it all, another little gem raises its head.
As those following the flag flying event in north Cyprus are aware, feelings are running high on the subject, not least because of the presence of a faction, thought dormant, the Grey Wolves who are indignant at the flying of the Cypriot Flag in north Cyprus.
It is being suggested that the actions of this couple could harm the Cyprob peace talks, that they are being supported by political......
The two Cyprus Presidents, Nicos Anastasiades and Mustafa Akinci, crossed to the north and to the south to have a coffee with each other in a display of mutual admiration and for a photo opportunity meant to instill confidence that the Cyprus Talks were off to a positive start.
Others seem to believe that this meander symbolised the back and forth of the talks so far, with a lot of roads traveled but the true destination, a solution, never reached.
This was not a meeting and it is doubtful......
There are some saddos out there whose only aim in life is to make the life of others as difficult as possible. It is as if their very limited view of life has coloured how they see everything. They seem to think that by doing something odious and spiteful, they somehow have some power over the person they are targeting.
Sorry little person, but since you cannot even control your own life, there is no way I would let you reach in
and take the......
Kibris Postasi newspaper (21.05.15, online) says that Baris Burcu, TRNC President Akinci’s spokesman, has revealed that the coordinates given by the Greek Cypriot side regarding the 28 minefields in the north are not good enough to help remove the mines. Mustafa Akinci discussed the issue today with the Chief of the UN Peace Keeping Force Mission, Lisa Buttenheim, and UNFICYP’s General Commander, Kristen Lund, asking them to obtain all the details regarding the minefields for the Turkish Cypriot side.
This is particularly disappointing especially after Afrika newspaper......

“I have now had it confirmed that the deeds to my villa are indeed in the name of Mustafa Guner. I have noticed a change in how his daughter now puts her name, she now calls herself Sebnem Guner Kader instead of the former way of just calling herself Sebnem Kader. Perhaps the divorce is complete. That does not take away from the fact that Akfinans Bank have......
If you Google ‘Kulaksiz 5 v Akfinans Bank Limited’ or even ‘K5 v Akfinans Bank Limited’, you will discover reason after reason not to buy in north Cyprus. Try Googling ‘North Cyprus property’, there too will be many more pages cataloging reasons not to buy.
It seems that no matter how bad the situation is, no matter how many promises are made by consecutive governments, nothing is ever done to improve the situation. “Copping a deaf un” has become an art form......
