Broken Promises?

With the 20th anniversary of the UN sponsored ‘Annan Plan’ referendum fast approaching, its been 20 years of broken promises from the EU and the UK government to ease restrictions and alleviate the discrimination faced towards all those who reside in the TRNC*.

Current UK foreign policy is aligned with UN resolutions for Cyprus, namely a settlement based on a bi-zonal, bi-communal federation (which has, ironically, been rejected by the Greek Cypriots twice, the Annan Plan and at the Crans-Montana talks in 2017). The current TRNC mandate, when Ersin Tatar was elected as President, is based on a 2-state solution model. The Greek Cypriot president, Nikos Christodoulides, mandate is to ‘find a solution’ for the Cyprus problem.

As those who either live in the TRNC, have friends or family living in the TRNC or have close contacts with the TRNC, we would like to know what you think is the best way forward:

The European Commission deeply regrets that the Greek Cypriot community did not approve the comprehensive settlement of the Cyprus problem, but it respects the democratic decision of the people. A unique opportunity to bring about a solution to the long-lasting Cyprus issue has been missed. The European Commission would like to warmly congratulate Turkish Cypriots for their "Yes" vote. This signals a clear desire of the community to resolve the island's problem. The Commission is ready to consider ways of further promoting economic development of the northern part of Cyprus...
