Turkish Military invasion and occupation of EU member Cyprus since 1974 is part of the Turkish alliance with the British against the Americans and the Greeks in Cyprus since 1950, which is a Turkish violation of the Treaty of Lausanne in Cyprus since 1974, which requires the United States and the European Union to implement the Treaty of Sevres against Turkey, that leads to the dissolution of Turkey into many pieces -a process begun by France, the EU and the US with the ascension process of Cyprus into the EU against hostile Turkish rhetoric towards Cyprus and the EU from 2000, that made the former Bush Administration in 2003 begin to implement the Treaty of Sevres against Turkey, through the American military overthrow of the Iraqi military dictatorship of Saddam Hussein in 2003 that laid the foundations for the dissolution of Turkey into many pieces as a result of the American sponsored emergence of the Sovereign Federation Nation State of Kurdistan uniting the Kurdish regions of Basur Kurdistan from Iraq with the Kurdish region of Bakur Kurdistan from Turkey, along with the Kurdish region of Rojava Kurdistan from Syria. Sophie Koutsoukos I agree. Why is it still unresolved? Matt Staios Let's see what he does...words, words, words. Invasion of the island Arthur Tsiambouris We. will. always. remember. and. we. need. to. always. be. at. the. side. of. our. brother. Cypriots. (translated) Jimmy Demetriou Shame. Cyprus belongs to the Cypriots. (translated) Turkish drilling and Cyprus EEZ Kyriacos Pavlou That's because the Turks have the balls to do it. The EU is spineless to take any meaningful action. Stan Vicki Boukas I ask again what is the point in being part of NATO if this organisation does not support the interests of its members? Con Kanellis Hmmmm don't hear the Trumpster saying he will intervene to contain a threat to the regional stability. Harry Sevastopoulos Europe and NATO are both useless organisations. Greece and Cyprus have a weapon called the veto .They should use to block future expansion plans of both organisations. Write your comments on our social media pages and see them publicized here...
