Cyprus Problem – ‘Just One Word, That’s All it Took’

According to Kibris newspaper (05.02.14) agreement on a single word remains in order to complete the joint declaration on the Cyprus problem and surprisingly the word isn’t “sovereignty.” So what do you think it is?

Apparently, after a visit to the island by Victoria Nuland, Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs at the United States Department of State, this was the conclusion drawn. She met with Presidents Anastasiades and Eroglu, and the TRNC Minister of Foreign Affairs, Ozdil Nami, in order to “encourage the sides for reaching an agreement” in the USA’s last ditch effort to restart the negotiations.

It was after this meeting that the rumour that a “single word” was preventing the agreement on a joint declaration. It is expected to take a few days to reach agreement on this word. In the light of this revelation, you have to wonder how long it will take to put together the final document expected to be put to the Cyprus electorate for a referendum. Lets see, if a group of men take two days to agree on a single word then how long would it take them to agree on a whole document?
