According to your numbers there are only 100k Turkish Cypriots, but even in 1960 there were 104.000 T/C , 50 years ago???. And this number is the result of an island-wide census man: http://www.cyprusdirectory.net/explore-cyprus/cyprus-demographics I gave the 1570 reference because of the reference of the Turkish Cypriots, that a some proportion of the Turkish population were living there and didn't settle there after 1974 (and yes many did). I think you know my point of view even a little bit so i don't think you mean when you ask "Ottomans conquered Syria, Israel and all of the Balkans too, does this mean that these places are or have something Turkish in them or that the Turkey has a claim on these lands?" :tounge: Believe me (or not) only a few Turkish people have imperial Ottoman view, i think even most of the nationalists have not such a dream. Yeah i am not happy either with the Turkish troops there, but you know what happened there in 1970's before they get there, don't you? [/quote] I know you're cool mate, hehe. :) Before British got in the game in the 50's the 2 communities were living peacefully. I just can't understand how Turkey wants this dispute to end if they don't even recognize Republic of Cyprus as a state in the first place, only country in the world that still doesn't i think. And they threaten Cyprus with further military action every other month. How does this help? The island has no army for it's protection ffs. [/quote] I want to repeat that i don't support any military and imperialistic action, but were there any Turkish soldier before 1963 when the violence against the Turkish Cypriots started ? "[b]Greek Cypriot fanatics appear bent on a policy of genocide.[/b]" [i]Washington Post ,17 February 1964[/i] "[b]The Greek Cypriot Minister of the Interior admitted that he had controlled the attack in Limassol himself.[/b]" [i]The Guardian 26th February 1964[/i] From a report from Michael Stephen. Michael Stephen is Master of Laws (LL M) of the Inner Temple Barrister and a former member of the British House of Commons. He is also member of the Royal Institute of International Affairs, Chatham House and author of The Cyprus Question, London, 1997. The crux of the current Cyprus problem is not the failure of Turkish Cypriots and Greek Cypriots to reach agreement, but the internationalisation of the issue, and the failure of the international community to recognise the enormity of the injustice done for nearly forty years to the Turkish Cypriots by the Greek Cypriots and by the international community itself. The failure of the international community to acknowledge the reality of Cyprus and to refrain from seeking to impose its own framework for a solution, starting from the fiction that there is today only one state and only one government in the island, has made a Cyprus settlement impossible. Until this international attitude changes, no amount of talks or diplomatic pressure will succeed or will deserve to succeed [b]The fundamental cause of the problem is that the international community has been, and still is, willing to overlook a systematic attempt at genocide by the Greek Cypriots in 1963 and again in 1964, 1967 and 1974, and the destruction by the Greek Cypriots in 1963 of the republic which was established by the 1960 Constitution and guaranteed by international Treaty. They have also been willing to overlook the fact that for 11 years after 1963 the Turkish Cypriots were driven from their homes, farms and businesses, and squeezed into defended enclaves comprising only three percent of the island, deprived of the basic necessities of modern life - all this despite the existence of a solemn international guarantee and UN troops actually in Cyprus since 1964.[/b] http://sam.gov.tr/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/MichaelStephen.pdf (pdf) [/quote]
Greek govt government seems to have decided to submit coordinates for the outer limits of the Greek continental shelf to the United Nations in the first months of 2013. On June 9th 1995, the Turkish parliament officially declared that unilateral action by Greece would constitute a casus belli.
