The TRUTH of the CYPROB issue and embargoes on Turkish Cypriots

By Chris Elliott…

We received a copy email as under from one of our readers who had signed the recent UK GOV petition (11,927 to date) calling for Direct Flights to Ercan, TRNC and had written to her MP, and no doubt this reply received, would be typical from any UK MP who has knowledge of and is in possession of the current UK government policy towards the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus which is seriously flawed.

Remember Cyprob started in 1963 at the time of the British Government of the day, which observed the ethnic cleansing attempt by Greek Cypriots of Turkish Cypriots in December 1963, and of the Greek Cypriot actions with the Cyprus Akritis plan that forced the Turkish Cypriots out of the Cyprus Government and its people into ghettos, making them stateless. 

Following this the UK Government then recognised the so called Republic of Cyprus and this also created an unrecognised stateless group of  Turkish Cypriots.

Having made this decision, the Cyprob unstable House of Cards has been developed by the so called RoC, UK, UN and EU which continues to deny acceptance of Turkish Cypriots and their human rights and self determination to this very day unless they agree to be ruled by the RoC through reunification.

WAKE UP UK…You walked away from Palestine years ago and look at the ethnic cleansing by Israel of Palestinians ever since which the world Tut Tuts and does nothing about! Does this sound familiar?

Dear Gloria,

Thank you for contacting me.

I understand your concerns. After 46 years the events of 1974 continue to cast a long shadow over Cyprus. The best way to address these issues is through a just and lasting settlement on the island. The UK’s commitment to a deal on Cyprus remains unwavering.

The UK Court of Appeal has confirmed that direct flights to the airport at Ercan would breach obligations under international law. This is because British and other foreign nationals who have entered Cyprus through the north are considered by the Government of the Republic of Cyprus to have entered the country through an illegal port of entry. This is, I’m afraid, not something over which the UK has direct control.

I am sorry to deliver what will be a disappointing reply but this is the current state of play.

Kind regards,

Matt

  1. Further to your comment on the issue of Cyprus and the letter from Matt Warman MP, I would like to draw your attention to the FACTS ON THE CYPRUS QUESTION, and under that, the Turkish Cypriots have every right to take the United Kingdom and the EU to the Court of human rights under the 1960 Agreement which is as follows: THE REPUBLIC OF CYPRUS WAS CREATED IN 1960 with carefully balanced CONSTITUTION that safeguarded the rights of the two communities. This Agreement and structure were guaranteed by a TREATY between the UNITED KINGDOM, GREECE, and TURKEY.
    Unfortunately, careful system of checks and balances was abrogated by the GREEK CYPRIOTS in 1963, totally pushing the Turkish Cypriots out of the partnership government. That action, along with the massacre of hundreds of Turkish Cypriots which was widely reported in the Western Media, precipitated today’s crisis. In an attempt to restore order, UN troops first arrived in 1964 and have remained ever since. Despite the presence of U.N. troops, Greek attacks continued. In 1974, Greek troops, under the very eyes of UN troops, overthrew the Greek Cypriot government of Archbishop Makarios, which had been serving Greek Cypriots while trying to OUST Turkish Cypriots from Cyprus, and a systematic slaughter of both Greek and Turkish Cypriots began. the U.K. declined to act under the 1960 Treaty of guarantee to restore order, COMPELLING TURKEY TO ACT alone under the Treaty by sending troops to stop the massacre and killings, furthermore the imminent declaration of UNION WITH GREECE. The Greek Coup was defeated and, after the massacre of all inhabitants of several more Turkish villages, PEACE WAS FINALLY RESTORED. For 46 years, since Turkish intervention of 1974, there has been peace and tranquility on the Island. The two communities remain divided and the fundamental breach of the 1960 Constitution and the destruction of the government partnership between Greek and Turkish Cypriots remain unresolved.
    TO CONTINUE.

    • We agree on that Soner Mustafa and has any group tried to take this issue to the court of human rights? If not now is the time to do it as there is so much truth coming out that shows the Cyprob problem could be solved by going back to the root cause and dealing with it….Two State solution and recognition would do it
