Who needs an enemy?

YUSUF KANLI writes:

Trying to woo nationalists, fascists, religious fanatics and such segments of the Greek Cypriot society that delivered oaths on hand grenades to “drink Turkish Cypriot society,” repeating at every opportunity that the “majority cannot succumb to the minority,” and at the same time trying to fool Turks with some empty “we want federation” rhetoric must be a very tiring occupation.

Tilting for futile talks

YUSUF KANLI writes:

What has changed since the inconclusive termination of the Cyprus talks at Crans-Montana? Nothing. Is there hope for the success of a new round of Cyprus talks should the sides decide to rehash the process?

Cyprus prospects

YUSUF KANLI writes:

Were federation prospects dead in Cyprus? Can it be claimed that whatever may be done the two people of the island cannot be geared towards creating a working and sustainable federal resolution?

A bitter anniversary

YUSUF KANLI writes:

Over 18,000 people perished, tens of thousands left homeless; the industrial heartland of the country was devastated. The Aug. 17, 1999 earthquake and the consequent Dec. 12 tremor were sufficiently bad for a country with a miserable three-way coalition government to slide into a financial crisis, making the 2000-2001 twin financial collapse inevitable.
