Nicosia, Cyprus – TRNC President Ersin Tatar’s call to Greek Cypriot leader Nicos Anastasiades chasing “Hellenism Dreams or Megalo Idea” that won’t come true in Cyprus.
“My call to Anastasiades is that he does not pursue dreams that will not come true and responds positively to our calls for dialogue,” TRNC President Ersin Tatar said, responding to the statements of Greek Cypriot leader Nikos Anastasiades that “a two-state solution will not be possible.”
Ersin Tatar, President of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC), responded to the statements of Greek leader Nikos Anastasiades that “a two-state solution on the island will not be possible”. “My call to Anastasiades is that he does not pursue dreams that will not come true and responds positively to our calls for dialogue,” Turkish Cypriot leader Tatar said, calling on Anastasiades, the leader of the Greek Cypriot Administration (GCA).
“Anastasiadis knows that the two-state solution is realistic”
Archbishop of the Greek Orthodox Church II. Himself ‘Anastasiades a two-state solution wanted’ statement after drawing attention to discussions on the subject in South Cyprus, the Turkish Cypriot leader, Tatar, “the Greek Cypriot leader Nikos Anastasiades in 2021 in his first statement, “I see the shape of a federation solution in Crans Montana I’ll stick with defending when I say” The shape of a two-state solution on Cyprus, Espen Barth Eide Special Adviser of the UN Secretary General, citing the architect about the former, the responsibility tried to install him,” he said.
In fact, Greek Cypriot leader Anastasiades believes that the two-state solution is a realistic solution, President Tatar said, “the factors related to the Cyprus issue also know this. In his meeting with Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu, it was also announced by Mr. Cavusoglu himself that he expressed this,” he said.
“Anastasiadis remains under pressure”
Tatar said Anastasiades had been forced to return to old policies, having come under great pressure from the Greek Orthodox Church, AKEL, ELAM and other elements. President Tatar continued his statement by saying:
“It should be noted here once again that it was the Greek-Greek Cypriot leadership with Archbishop Makarios, who decried the Republic of Cyprus as the “Enosis springboard” and the “intermediate goal”, established in equal partnership with the Turkish Cypriot people and the Greek Cypriot people. As the Akritas plan was being prepared for this goal, the secret organization and armament of the Greek Cypriots continued. The Constitution of the Republic of Cyprus was also trampled on by the Greek Cypriot leadership, while the rights granted to the Turkish Cypriot people in the Constitution were also wanted to be destroyed.
“The goal of the July 15, 1974 coup was to annex Cyprus to Greece”
Tatar continued his statements by stating that the massacres of the Greek Cypriots against the Turkish Cypriots were not forgotten after the military coup carried out by Greece in Cyprus: we also remember very well what happened in the Bloody Christmas attacks aimed at Enosis. If it were not for the resistance of our people and the intervention of Turkey, the second Cretan disaster would have occurred in Cyprus. The 15 July 1974 coup, organized by the Greek junta, was also aimed at annexing Cyprus to Greece. If Turkey had not carried out the July 20, 1974 peacekeeping operation, the Turkish Cypriot people would have been subjected to genocide and buried in the pits of slaughter. Meanwhile, former Greek Prime Minister Costas Simitis should also be reminded of his statement after Southern Cyprus was unilaterally and unfairly made a member of the EU. Simitis said: “Enosis took place with Cyprus’ membership in the EU.”
“The main reason for its failure is the Greek – Greek Cypriot mentality”
The facts of Cyprus, what happened and the Greek-Greek mentality are obvious. According to this mentality, which is still ongoing; Cyprus is the island of Hellen, the Turkish Cypriot people are a minority, they do not have the right to political equality and self-government. Again, according to this mentality, the Greeks are the sole owner and judge of Cyprus and its natural resources. The main reason for the failure of the negotiations that have been going on since 1968 is the Greek-Greek Cypriot mentality that is still ongoing. Especially in Crans Montana, it became clear once again that the form of a federation-based solution had collapsed and the Greek side did not want a fair deal.
For all these reasons, with the support of Turkey, we have also raised the issue of a solution based on two sovereign states. We call a sovereign two-state solution for the existence of our state, the sovereignty, freedom and security of our people. We will continue to walk this path. My call to Anastasiades, the president of the Greek administration, is that he does not pursue dreams that will not come true and responds positively to our calls for dialogue. My wish and desire is that we will reach the form of a sovereign two-state solution in 2021.”
Greek Cypriot leader Nicos Anastasiades: The use of weapons will mean the end of Greek-Cypriots.
Any attempt to use military means to resolve the Cypriot issue will mean the end of Creek-Cypriots on the island, President Nicos Anastasiades has said, according to a short excerpt from a news show that will be aired in the country on July 1, 2020.
“If we consider that we can provide a solution militarily, through militarization, this will be the end of Cypriot Hellenism, which is something I do not want,” he told Cypriot channel RIK.
“This is not a note of pessimism or surrender, quite the opposite. You have to know the facts if you choose weapons,” he added, noting that the only “weapons” used by Cyprus is diplomacy.
