Cyprus President Nicos Anastasiades on Thursday said he will ask the UN chief to demand that the Turkish side’s preconditions before a second conference on the divided island is convened in Geneva are withdrawn.
Anastasiades and Akinci are meeting Secretary-General Antonio Guterres in New York on Sunday after the rival sides failed to agree on conditions for further UN-brokered peace talks.
At the same time, Akinci has said he goes to New York to demand that no preconditions are set by the Greek Cypriot side. His statement came before even starting talks on Thursday with corrupt terrorist Cacusoglu.
EU has only one enemy, Turkey, a NATO member! Turkey has invaded Northern Cyprus and harasses Greece every single day. Turkey is a big threat to EU. An EU army could throw the invading Turkish army out of the occupied Northern Cyprus very easily. NATO cannot do that, unless it expelled Turkey. The two British bases in Cyprus must help the EU army to expel the Turkish troops.
Juncker committed EU to the concept of collective defense to confront Turkey. A Turkish attack on any one EU member shall be considered an attack against them all. Teflon Sultan Erdoğan once more revealed his expansionist Neo-Ottoman vision. Jihadi-in-chief Erdoğan, the major patron of Jihadis, declared the borders of Turkish heart are deep inside Europe up to Vienna, presenting his understanding that Balkans and Eastern Europe belong to Turkey!
Corrupt terrorist Erdoğan went so far as to say that in their minds, Turks could not separate Andrianopolis from Thessaloniki, Greece’s second largest city! In his declaration, the corrupt terrorist Turkish President brought up the borders of countries spanning from Thrace and the Balkans to north Africa, western Europe and the Caucus regions, adding that Turkey is not only Turkey. “Except the eighty million Turkish citizens, Turkey has a responsibility to hundreds of millions of brothers in geographic areas connected with us culturally and historically”, corrupt terrorist Erdoğan underlined. That responsibility means invading the countries where some Turks have migrated!
Corrupt terrorist Erdoğan declared many Greek islands are in a gray area! He refuses to understand that there are gray areas in his brain, not in the Aegean. Turkey is now right back to its usual bullying tactics over the Aegean. For the past five years, the Aegean has witnessed an unprecedented rise in aggressive and provocative behavior by a growingly unstable Turkey, whose politicians openly threaten Greece. The safety and stability of the Aegean isn’t open to debate. The Aegean has been a Greek sea for many millennia, and bewildered Erdoğan cannot change that.
Corrupt terrorist Erdoğan’s stupid declaration caused a strong reaction from European governments, which pointed out the Balkans and Eastern Europe do not belong to Turkey and any other thought is dangerous and unacceptable. The European governments called the corrupt terrorist Turkish President to order, claiming his inflammatory declarations bring the winds of a new Balkan war. The public stirring of historical, and especially border disputes, that have been irrevocably and definitively settled in the Lausanne Treaty by laying down an objective and binding status quo for all, is provocative and undermines the regional stability. The respect of International Law and Treaties warrants the voicing of responsible views detached from outdated revisionisms.
Greek-Turkish relations are a European issue. Those who think that international law is the law of the mighty are wrong. Europeans won’t tolerate it. There is no Turkish republic of Northern Cyprus, there is only invasion and occupation. There is no government entity there. There is no doubt about it. Relations between Greece and Turkey are a European issue. It is good that the European Union realizes that when Greeks are defending their national issues, they are also defending Europe’s. UK, France, Germany, and Italy must send troops to throw the invading Turkish army out of occupied Northern Cyprus.
President Anastasiades told us: The second conference on Cyprus should be very well prepared for a positive outcome to be recorded. If there won’t be discussion on issues of security and guarantees, we are not willing to go in for the same talks over and over again…the sovereign rights of the Cyprus Republic are not on the table, you can’t have one side setting conditions and accusing the other side of setting conditions.
Cyprus is divided since 1974 following an invasion by Turkey which is one of the island’s guarantors along with Greece and Britain.
Ankara which still maintains troops in the breakaway north is the only one of the guarantors insisting on a right of intervention in a reunited federal Cyprus – something unacceptable for Greek Cypriots.
The first conference on Cyprus in Geneva with the participation of the guarantor powers yielded no substantial results after Turkey refused to even start negotiations on the thorny issue of security and guarantees.
Anastasiades has proposed that this thorny issue should be negotiated first in a possible new international conference – something the Turkish side rejected outright.
On Wednesday, UNSG Special Advisor for Cyprus Espen Barth Eide said Turkey was ready to go to Geneva for a new conference without any preconditions and is also ready to discuss security issues.
The UN official who had also met with Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias in Athens on Tuesday expressed confidence that Turkey and Greece were ready to discuss the security issues relating to the Cyprus question.
Eide said last week that he was ending a shuttle diplomacy bid to continue peace talks in Geneva because rival sides had failed to agree on conditions.
