Cypriots want reunification at last

In addition to German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier and his British counterpart Philip Hammond, several high-ranking UN representatives have visited Cyprus in recent months. But it is not only the international community that is hoping for a peaceful solution for the divided island, the liberal website Protagon observes: "The change of stance among a large section of the population is a positive development. This time it seems ready to bear the consequences of a compromise. For the first time it looks like the majority has realised that the advantages of a solution are greater than what a non-solution offers. They see that without a solution it will be harder to make the most of the hydrocarbon resources, that a solution on both sides would boost tourism and that the geopolitical unrest in the region is facilitating the creation of a stable and prosperous united state that can profit - as a whole - from its geographic position and membership of the EU."
