Phileleftheros - Cyprus | 27/04/2015

Ankara has the final say

Expectations of Mustafa Akıncı after his election shouldn't be too high, the liberal daily Phileleftheros warns: "It would be nice if a solution was only dependent on the will of the Greek and Turkish Cypriots. Because that will is there. Both sides fervently want a solution to be freed of this cumbersome burden that forces us to live with occupying forces and settlers. … If it was just a matter of will the issue would be resolved within a few hours. … Although we don't see it, we all want the same thing. The question is however what the others want for us. It seems highly unlikely that a Turkish Cypriot leader - as progressive and patriotic as he may be - will be able to sign a solution against the will of the occupying power."
