South Cyprus President Wants to Relocate Turkish Cypriots

South Cyprus President Wants to Relocate Turkish CypriotsThe South Cyprus President, Nicos Anastasiades, says that he wants to relocate Turkish Cypriots who have for over 40 years been living in properties previously owned by Greek Cypriots prior to the 1974 Turkish intervention.

He believes that Turkish Cypriots living in Guzelyurt (Morphou) should be moved elsewhere and the area given to Greek Cypriots as part of the Cyprus ‘solution’. This area was offered to them in 2004 as part of the Annan Plan and because of this little was done to develop it. Because Greek Cypriots rejected the plan, occupants of the area set about developing the run down area feeling that it was now a more permanent home. This move by Anastasiades goes against the principal that no one would lose their home as part of the solution and that compensation would be given to those who had lost property in 1974. Anastasiades explained:

“We would like to remind the Greek Cypriot side that political equality and rotational presidency are very important for Turkish Cypriots. We would also like to remind the Turkish Cypriot side that territory and properties are very important for the Greek Cypriots.”

The alternative, which Anastasiades seems to be now rejecting, is for Turkish and Greek Cypriots to have separate administrative areas without borders between them. The south originally wanted Guzelyurt (Morphou) to merely be part of their administrative area. Now, they seem to want to ethnically cleanse this area as well!

Obviously, Anastasiades is trying to create a plan which if it went to referendum would be rejected by the north so he can say that he tried but this time Turkish Cypriots rejected an offer for a solution.

    Yes, that certainly seems to be his scheme. Anyway, the man really does not want any form of settlement other than his own, does he?

    And we know what that would entail for TCs.

    “The South Cyprus President, Nicos Anastasiades, says that he wants to relocate Turkish Cypriots who have for over 40 years been living in properties previously owned by Greek Cypriots prior to the 1974 Turkish intervention.”
    RUBBISH. The president of CYPRUD would never call the 1974 Turkish invasion as an ” intervention”
    As per usual you spout your usual crap.

    Hi Yiannis. Your English doesn’t seem to have improved much over the past year or so.

    Tell me, prior to 1974, when the “vast majority of the Cypriots, i.e the GCs” were in charge, do you think they treated the small minority of Cypriots, i.e. the TCs, with kindness and humanity?

    Given a settlement which put them in charge again, i.e. a “democratically elected government”, do you think they would treat the minority TCs with the same kindness and humanity?

  • Miltiades

    Ian, the G/C overwhelming majority and the 18% T/C minority lived in peace for many many years. The Brits put a stop to this however by using the T/Cs, during the liberation struggle, as an auxiliary force aimed against the struggle.

    British imperialistic motives are well known the world over.

    In answering your question I would say this. There is no reason why a minority would be treated harshly provided that both the majority and minority embrace Cyprus as their one and only one motherland.

    Personally Im not entirely confident that a solution would be agreed by both communities until such time, in the future, when both communities ditch their pre conceived ideology as to their ethnicity. I say this to all Cypriots. You want to be a Turk or a Greek then PO to your respective ideological motherlands and leave us Cypriots to get on with our lives in peace and harmony , united under the embrace of our motherland, the island of Cyprus.
