Cyprus PIO: Turkish Press and Other Media, 02-07-29 -- Arif Hasan Tahsin writing in AFRIKA (27.07.02) describes Turkey's presence in the occupied area as occupation. Replying to comments by Dogan Harman of KIBRISLI newspaper, Tahsin, inter alia, says ...

"Is it not a fact that Turkey has occupied all the institutions in the north of Cyprus and established a puppet regime there?' If the creation of a situation like this in a country, in a state, which is a member of the UN, by another country, is not an occupation, what is it then? A conquest? Or? Which laws gave the right to Turkey to bring in people from Turkey and give them voting rights to usurp the free will of the Turkish Cypriots? Is there any legal framework that deprives the Turkish Cypriots of their Cypriot citizenship in accordance with the international laws? From where does Turkey get the right and the authority to replace the Cyprus Pound with the Turkish Lira and cut the foreign aid to the Turkish Cypriots? Or give the right to the Turkish citizens to acquire title deeds for land belonging to Cypriots? As the case is this, what else can one call the people of such a country, other than slaves?"

Turkey's Kurds & Cyprus' tCypriots

As either unitary state or federation solutions are discussed as replacements to Cyprus' 1960 and Turkey's 1923 unworkable constitutions, should we abide by "if a right is a right too many for Turkey's Kurdish community (circa 23% of population) then that right is a right too many for Cyprus' tCypriot community too (circa 15%), and vice versa." Is the adoption of this fair logic the catalyst to securing just solutions for both UN countries.
