The Akron Aoton !!!

The days are approaching when we will go to a five-party Conference and we heard the Leader of the largest party, informing us about his campaign, in contacts he had with the ambassadors of the International Factor, with suggestions for our own concessions on the Cyprus issue and inviting meeting the Leader of the other major party, to jointly support the positions. As displaced, we heard many similar from our “compatriots” who were comfortable with the effects of the invasion, but we did not expect, before the talks even began, that a Leader, even expressing his party's positions, would suggest to foreign Ambassadors as a condition for resolving the Cyprus problem. Let our Leadership make other concessions, such as the return of political equality to the Turkish Cypriot community in order to secure our own (probably their own) aspirations.

We have been waiting, gentlemen, as political Leaders of this place, to vigorously claim the rights of the Homeland and the rights of the displaced who are being violated by Turkey with the invasion and occupation, for 47 years. I am sorry to note once again that, as a matter of fact, it has become clear that from the beginning until today, the pursuit of our political leadership has been and is to ensure the unjust convenience of the majority of Greek Cypriots, which has resulted from the effects of the Turkish Invasion. Any solution that would provide for the release of the occupied and the return of refugees, would be completely contrary to the aforementioned aspirations of unjust convenience as it would involve the return of Turkish Cypriots to their property in the free areas and more. Therefore, such proposals were never sought, nor were they accepted by our respective Leadership. Is it not for this reason that we did not denounce Turkey to International Organizations for the occupation and the uprooting and to demand its release and return? Is it not for this reason that with inaction and constant retreats, you gnawed the time for 47 years, until the secret and unjust seizure of the property of the Turkish Cypriots in the free areas was established, ignoring the fact that over time, not only did we allow but also help Turkey to consolidate the conquest of our territories and to promote its own goals? Is it not for this reason that instead of asking for the return of the property to the rightful owners and asking for compensation from the usurpers who illegally withhold foreign property, we called them “users”, gave them rights and the first reason to acquire ownership of the property? Is it not for this reason that our Leadership did not take care of the fair and equal distribution of the burdens of the invasion, so that the burden would be distributed to all Greek Cypriots, and conditions would be created with the common goal of the release and return of refugees? Is it not for this reason that our Leadership from the beginning took care to silence the refugees with a dictatorial policy, appointing and / or imposing people controlled by its own environment, for their representation? These and many more that are not timely to report.

What do we want !!!

After the situation created by the Turkish Invasion, we all know what everyone wants for the satisfaction of their personal interests. It is obvious that our respective Leaders preferred the promotion and perpetuation of unjust and temporary personal interests, despite the justification of the Homeland and the public. benefit of the people, resulting in the creation of citizens of various categories. They granted the internationally guaranteed rights of the refugees, in order to take advantage of the unjust and illegal seizure of the property abandoned by the Turkish Cypriots. Do one concession after another in our National issue, even the alleged offer of the occupied to create a State, controlled by Turkey, be sacrificed to ensure the permanent and legalization of the seizure of Turkish Cypriot property in the free areas and for other temporary personal benefits and ambitions?

What the refugees want.

From the beginning, all the refugees eagerly wanted the release of the occupiers and their return to their places. Most were evicted from their homes, with only the clothes they wore. Some of them may have subsequently been favored with assets of greater value than those lost in the occupied territories, but this could not neutralize their desire to return. Barbaric and dishonorable abuse, the loss of relatives, uprooting, persecution from ancestral homes, loss of property, dispersal and much more were a severe blow to the refugees. As if all this were not enough for them, in exile as before, they were confronted with the dictatorial establishment, which took care to silence them so that they could not shout for their justification. They were ridiculed and referred to a long struggle for liberation and return, while they, in complete secrecy, led things to the perpetuation of the invasion and the seizure of property left by the Turkish Cypriots. Thus the refugees were forced to keep within themselves the lust, pain and sorrow that weighed on their souls, having no choice but to shout and claim their rights. For 47 years now, one refugee has been leaving life after another, with their souls charged with the unfulfilled desire to return to the land where they were born, rooted and bonded with it with so much effort and so much love. We, the few survivors, continue for years now, to watch with despair and frustration the unacceptable manipulations of our Leadership that lead precisely to the surrender of the occupied Homeland to Turkey and then the annihilation of Hellenism from our island. All this for the satisfaction of personal ambitions, the reward of thirty pieces of silver and the seizure of the property of the Turkish Cypriots. By what right did the Leadership of our “Homeland” give a map to the occupier by identifying the areas it proposes to remain under Turkish administration (including the entire province of Kyrenia)? Nevertheless, the people of Kyrenia, after difficult and long efforts, managed in 1987 to get rid of the silence imposed on them by the Leadership, and then with their struggles succeeded in including the return under e / k administration of nine villages in the province of Kyrenia. (Larnaca Lapithos, Agridaki, Sisklipos, Agios Ermolaos, Kontemenos, Asomatos, Myrtos, Karpasia and the residential area of Kormakitis), in all the solution plans proposed by the United Nations. By what right did our political leadership in the 2015 talks demand that the four of these villages (Larnaca Lapithos, Agridaki, Sysklipos and Agios Ermolaos) not be returned under Greek rule, and demanded the return of the Kythrea area instead? ; When the Leadership of the “Homeland” ignores the struggles and achievements of the people of Kyrenia and deprives them of their return for the second time, what do you think we should do? When there are allegations of reports from our leadership for a two-state solution and for further concessions on our part, before the talks in Pentameri even begin, what hopes do the people of Kyrenia have for liberation and return? When our leadership, with the agreed settlement of the Cyprus issue in a five-party conference, ruled out the participation of the European Union and the member states of the Security Council in the talks, how do they expect us to believe that they seek a just solution in accordance with the European acquis and international law? Now that with our inaction and with other manipulations we have supported the consolidation of the occupation and the change of the Demographic character, how and when do you think that you will promote the rights of our Homeland and the rights of its citizens to claim the liberation of the occupied and the return of refugees from both sides, which is also the coveted issue? At least do not fool us. We know that our only hope now is in the will of God.

What do the non-displaced Greek Cypriots want?

Please allow me to express my personal appreciation that the vast majority, (to avoid totality), seek to perpetuate and legitimize the illegal, temporary and unjust benefits brought to them by the Turkish Invasion, in conjunction with the manipulations of the Leadership. us. That is, speaking clearly, in all probability, they will not want the liberation of the occupied Homeland and the return of refugees from both sides because this will deprive them of their unjust personal benefits. Furthermore, based on the concessions to the “Users”, it seems that they want to eliminate any right to reclaim the confiscated property of the Greek Cypriots in the occupied territories, in order to ensure that in the same way, the Turkish Cypriots will not be able to regain ownership of their property in free areas. It should be noted that the properties left by the Turkish Cypriots began to be distributed immediately after the Invasion by our respective Leadership, to their party favors, including non-refugees, big businessmen and others, with purely benevolent secrecy, without prejudice. Maybe it is for this reason that they often tell us “we (ie the Greek Cypriots) from here and they (ie the Turkish Cypriots and settlers) from there”. But I also wonder what their answer would be if the conditions supported the opposite, that is, “we from there and they from here”? When will we finally stop making fun of and scraping the wounds of afflicted refugees? It is the duty of every Leader and all the actors who handled and / or still handle the fate of our Homeland and its people, to testify in writing and with all sincerity, what goals they pursued for the Cyprus issue and how they promoted these goals in practice. Do others tell us they want to, when in practice they seek the opposite? Enough personal projections with non-existent patriotism and slogans.

“They want to get rid of the damn guarantee conditions of '60.”

Let me reiterate that the conditions of guarantees of the 60's did not allow any right of military invasion of the Republic of Cyprus by the guaranteeing Powers (Greece, Turkey, England). Neither together nor alone. For this issue, refer to articles by Mr. Christos Iakovos, the blessed Alekos Markidis, Mr. Giannakis Homer, as well as in my previous articles. We overturned this prohibition of military intervention by the guarantors when President Makarios denounced to the UN on July 19, 1974, that “the events in Cyprus were not an uprising that could be considered an internal affair, but a clear military INVASION and blatant violation of the independence and territorial integrity of the Republic of Cyprus by the military regime in Greece, with the aim of extending its dictatorship in Cyprus and promoting the “Union”. With this complaint, the reward was given to Turkey, by taking appropriate measures of military invasion in Cyprus, in order to repel the reported invasion of Greece and to prevent the alleged alleged consequences that would have for the security of the Turkish Cypriots. Is it not that Turkey did not take military action immediately after the coup because it knew it had no such right? Is it not for this reason that in London on July 17, 1974, the British leadership, taking advantage of President Makarios' rage and confusion over the adventure of the coup, as well as his interest in preventing the recognition of Sampson, guided him, (the British ), to denounce in his speech at the UN, that Greece made a military invasion of Cyprus? Is it not for this reason that the British Foreign Secretary secured on the same day, the consent of President Makarios for Britain's cooperation with Turkey in dealing with the events in Cyprus (= Turkish Invasion)? Is it not for this reason that Turkey waited to hear Makarios' planned and pre-agreed speech, before giving the order to invade its troops, who were on standby and at sea? For a more detailed report and further documentation of the above please visit my website www.andreaspetroudis.com article 9 dated 5.9.2018 entitled “From Coup to Invasion”, as well as Article 13 dated 7.8.2019 entitled “Verification of letter reports 5.9.2018”). With this in mind, should we curse the provisions of the guarantees for the Turkish Invasion, or the combination of the Coup with the misleading and pre-agreed denunciation of President Makarios for the alleged military Invasion of Greece in Cyprus?

Suggestions for further concessions with the return of political equality.

How did we manage, before going to the Pentameri, to inform the Ambassadors of the International Agent, about the concessions we are proposing for political equality with the Turkish Cypriots? Should they clarify to us whether by this they mean that the votes of the Greek Cypriots, which were 80%, should have the same weight as the votes of the Turkish Cypriots, which were 18%? If the foreign ambassadors suggested such a thing to us, we would have to reject it with the simple question, what kind of political equality do they have in their country. Should not a “single citizen have the same rights and obligations” apply to a single democratic state, such as theirs and ours, regardless of nationality and / or religion? But when this unjust irregularity is proposed by our Leadership, what do we expect the foreign Ambassadors to tell us? Turkey will probably tell us, since you officially gave it to me in the presence of foreign ambassadors, before the negotiations even start, I will keep it, but I will not offer any consideration. In such a case, as in previous similar cases, you will come after us to tell us that you were deceived by the foreign agent and the matter will end. But the bad for the Homeland remains.

We had the same side effects in the case of the allegations about our own proposals that provided for the creation of two states. Fortunately, with the statement of the European Union that it does not accept a two-state solution, it is possible that we have been temporarily relieved of this risk.

The positivity of setting a schedule.

Regarding the positivity expressed in setting a time frame for reaching a solution, I would like to reiterate the view that for 47 years we have been gnawing at time with our inaction and our respective concessions and preventing any solution solution that contained the right of the Turkish Cypriots to return. and / or the exchange of property. Now why hurry to close like, like the Cyprus issue, with alleged references to the surrender of the occupied territories for the creation of a state controlled by Turkey, with suggestions for further concessions to political equality and more? Are you anxious to ensure the permanence of the perpetrators of the Invasion as soon as possible, because you feel that with the International Unrest in our region, there may be a possibility of overturning the plans to perpetuate the perpetrators of the Invasion?

The liberation from the Turkish occupation and the Turkish troops.

You tell us that you want to get rid of the Turkish occupation and the occupying troops. But tell us how you expect us to get rid of the Turkish occupation, when for 47 years until today, not only have we not demanded the liberation of our occupied Homeland and the withdrawal of its troops, with appeals to International Organizations, but we have not even appealed to the International the huge problem that Turkey has created for us with the occupation, the displacement, the change of the demographic character, etc. Do you think that all the manipulations and concessions that have been made so far, as well as those that you are proposing now, are in line with the stated desire? for the liberation of the Homeland? Do you say all this to caress the ears of suffering people? Even now, why not go to the Pentagon and claim with evidence the liberation and justification of our small Homeland, invoking its internationally recognized independent and unified entity as a member state of the United Nations and as a member state of the European Union? Why not invoke the application of International Law and the European Acquis to claim the rights of refugees? It is obvious that both those displaced and those who benefited from the Turkish Invasion know what everyone wants. The displaced clearly say what they want and what needs to be done to secure them, while it seems that some others may throw a smokescreen that they are interested in themselves, while in practice promoting their own alien goals.

When will we finally consider our responsibilities to the Homeland and to those who sacrificed their lives and families, under conditions of continuous occupation for millennia, to hand over to us this island of Saints and Hellenism. The temporary benefits will disappear quickly, while our responsibilities towards the Homeland and towards our ancestors and especially towards our descendants, will be passed down from generation to generation. Then we will understand that all of them will spit on us and curse us. What pain and what pain !!!

Happy Resurrection,

Andreas Petroudis

Akron Aoton !!! – The extreme !!! – Not more ultra !!!

The days are coming when we are going to a five-party Conference and we heard the Leader of the largest party, informing us of his campaign, in contacts he had with the ambassadors of the International Factor, with suggestions for our own concessions on the Cyprus issue and inviting to a meeting the Leader of the other major party, for the joint support of the positions. As displaced persons, we heard many similar from our “compatriots” who were comfortable with the consequences of the invasion, but we did not expect, that even before the talks began, a Leader expressing the positions of his party, to propose to foreign Ambassadors that a pre-condition of a solution to the Cyprus problem, is for our own Leadership to make further concessions, such as the attribution of political equality to the Turkish Cypriot community, in order to secure our own, (or rather their), aspirations .

We expected, gentlemen, as political leaders of this country, to assert and fight for the rights of our Fatherland and the rights of the displaced people, which have been trampled for 47 years, by the Turkish invasion and occupation. I regret to note once again that it has become apparent, that from the outset until today, the aim of our political leadership has been, and is, to ensure the unfair benefits of the majority of Greek Cypriots, resulting from the consequences brought about by the Turkish Invasion. Any solution that would entail the release of the occupied territory and the return of refugees would be completely contrary to the above-mentioned objectives of unfair treatment, as it would also entail the return of Turkish Cypriots to their properties in the free areas and others. Therefore, no such proposals have ever been sought or accepted by our leadership. Is it not for this reason that we have not reported Turkey to International Organizations and demand the liberation of the occupied area and the return of refugees? Is it not for this reason that with our inactivity and constant retreats, you have been gnawing the time for 47 years, until the secret and unjust seizure of the property of the Turkish Cypriots has been established, ignoring the fact that over that time, we have not only left, but also helped Turkey to consolidate the conquest of our territories and promote her own goals? Is it not for this reason that instead of asking for the return of the property to the rightful owners and seeking compensation from the usurpers who illegally seize foreign property, we have called them 'users', and have given them rights including the first choice for acquiring ownership of the property? Is it not for this reason that our Leadership has not taken care of the fair and equal distribution of the burdens of the invasion, so as to distribute the burden to all Greek Cypriots, and to create conditions with the common aim of ending the occupation and the return of refugees? Is it not for this reason that our leadership has taken care from the outset to silence the refugees with dictatorial policy, by appointing and / or imposing people controlled by its own environment, as their representatives? That and a lot more, that's not the time for reporting.

1. What do we want !!!

After the situation created by the Turkish Invasion, we all know what everyone wants in order to satisfy their personal interests. It is obvious that our respective Leaders preferred the promotion and permanence of the unjust and temporary personal interests, instead of the vindication of the Fatherland and the common benefit of the people. This resulted in the creation of citizens of different categories. They granted the internationally guaranteed rights of refugees, in order to exploit the unjust and illegal seizure of the property abandoned by the Turkish Cypriots. Could it be that the one concession after another to our national issue, up to and including the so said offer of the occupied area for the creation of a State controlled by Turkey, are in aim to ensure the permanency and legitimacy of the seizure of Turkish Cypriot property in the free areas, and for other temporary personal benefits and ambitions?

1.1) What do the refugees want.

From the beginning, all the refugees were very much fond of the liberation of the occupied land and the return to their homes. Most were evicted from their homes, with only property the clothes they wore. Some of them may have been later favored with properties of greater value than those they lost in the occupied territories, but this could not counteract their desire to return to their homes. The barbaric and dishonorable abuse, the loss of relatives, the uprooting, the persecution of ancestral homes, the loss of property, the dispersal and much more were a heavy blow to the refugees. As if all this were not enough for them, they were also confronted with the dictatorial establishment, which made sure to silence them, so that they could not demand their vindication. They were mocked and referred to in a long struggle for liberation and return to their homes, while the Leadership, in complete secrecy, led things towards the permanence of the fait accompli of the Invasion and the seizure of the property abandoned by the Turkish Cypriots. Thus the refugees were forced to keep in themselves their desire, pain and sorrow that weighed on their souls, as they did not have the choice to assert their rights. For 47 years now, one refugee has been fleeing life after another, with their souls charged by the unfulfilled desire to return to the land where they were born, rooted and bonded with, with so much effort and so much love. We the few remaining in life continue, for years now, to monitor with despair and disappointment the unacceptable manipulations of our Leadership that lead possitively, to the surrender of our occupied homeland to Turkey and in later time to the annihilation of Hellenism from our island. Could it be that all these were planned for the accomplishments of personal ambitions, the remuneration of the thirty silvers and the seizure of the land properties of the Turkish Cypriots. By what right did the Leadership of our “Homeland” gave a map to the conqueror, specifying the areas they proposed to remain under Turkish administration, (including the entire District of Kyrenia)? Nevertheless, the Kyrenians, after long and difficult efforts, managed in 1987 to get rid of the gagging imposed on them by their Leadership, and with their struggles they succeeded in including the return of nine villages of kyrenia district, under Greek administration (ie Larnacas Lapithou, Agridaki, Sysklepos, Agios Ermolaos, Kontemenos, Asomatos, Myrtou, Karpasia and the inhabited region of Kormakitis), in all the solution plans proposed by the United Nations. By what right did our political leadership in the 2015 talks, asked that the four of these villages (ie Larnacas Lapithou, Agridaki, Sysklepos and Agios Ermolaos) not be returned under Greek administration, and instead requested the return of the area of Kythrea? When the Leadership of our “Homeland” ignores the struggles and achievements of the Kyrenias and refuses their return to their homes for a second time, what do you think we ought to do. When we hear whispers about reports from our leadership, for a two-state solution and now for further concessions from our side, before the talks in the Five-Party Conference begin, what hopes remain for the Kyrenian refugees for liberation and return? When our Leadership, agreed that the resolution of the Cyprus issue must be resolved at a Five-Party Conference, thus ruling out of the talks participation of the European Union and the Member States of the Security Council, how do they expect us to believe that they are seeking a fair solution in accordance with the European vested interests and the International law. Now that with our inaction and other manipulations we have supported the consolidation of the occupation and change of the Demographic character, how and when do you think, you will promote the rights of our country and the rights of its citizens by claiming the liberation of the occupied part and the return of refugees on both sides, as per the coveted demand? At least do not make fun of us. We know that our only hope now lies in God's will.

1.2) What do non-displaced Greek Cypriots want?

Please allow me to express my personal opinion, that the vast majority, (to avoid saying all), seek to permanence and legitimize the illegal, temporary and unjust benefits brought to them by the Turkish Invasion, in conjunction with the manipulations of our Leadership. In other words, they probably will not want the liberation of the occupied homeland and the return of refugees on both sides, because that will deprive them of the unjust personal benefits. Moreover, on the basis of the concessions of rights to the “Users”, it seems that they want to eliminate any right of the Greek Cypriots to regain their occupied property, in order to ensure that in the same way, the Turkish Cypriots will not be able to regain ownership of their property in the free areas. It should be noted that the properties abandoned by the Turkish Cypriots, began to be distributed immediately after the Invasion, by our respective leaderships to their party-favorites, which included non-refugees, big business and others, in a purely favorable manner, without any predetermined criteria and in complete secrecy. Maybe that's why we often hear them say “it's better for us (ie the Greek Cypriots) to stay on our side and they (ie the Turkish Cypriots and settlers) to remain on their side”. But I wonder what their answer would be if the conditions were reversed, ie 'the Greek Cypriots to be on the other side and the Turkish Cypriots on this side'? When are we finally going to stop making fun of, and scratching the wounds of the suffering refugees? It is up to each Leader and all the factors who have been involved in handling the fate of our Country and its people, to testify in writing and in pure honesty, what objectives they have pursued for the Cyprus issue and how they have promoted these goals in practice. Do they tell us what they want, while in practice they are pursuing the opposite? We had enough personal projections with non-existent patriotism.

2. 'They want to get rid of the cursed guarantee provisions of the 60s'.

Let me reiterate once again that the guarantee treaties of the 1960s did not allow any military invasion in the Republic of Cyprus by the guarantor forces (ie Greece, Turkey & England). Not together, nor separately. Reference on this is made in articles by Mr Christos Iacovou, the late Alekos Markides, Mr Giannakis Homerou, as well as by me in previous articles. We overturned this prohibition of military intervention by the guarantors, when President Makarios on 19 July 1974 by his speech to the UN Conference, alleged that “the events in Cyprus were not an uprising that could be regarded as an internal affair, but was a clear military INVASION and a flagrant violation of the independence and territorial integrity of the Republic of Cyprus, by the military regime in Greece, with the aim of extending its dictatorship to Cyprus and promoting the “Union with Greece”. With this allegation, Turkey was given the de-incrimination, for taking corresponding measures of military invasion in Cyprus, in order to repel the alleged invasion of Greece and to prevent the alleged consequences it would have for the security of the Turkish Cypriots. Is it not for this reason that Turkey did not intervene immediately after the coup, because they knew that they had no such right? Is it not for this reason that in London on 17 July 1974, the English Leadership, taking advantage of President Makarios' anger and confusion from the coup adventure, as well as his interest in preventing the recognition of Samson, guided him, (the English ), to denounce in his speech to the United States that Greece had made a military invasion of Cyprus. Is it not for this reason that the British Foreign Secretary secured on the same day, the consent of President Makarios, for England's cooperation with Turkey in dealing with the events in Cyprus (= Turkish invasion)? Isn't that why Turkey waited to hear Makarios' planned and pre-agreed speech before ordering the invasion of its troops, who were ready on standby and at sea? (Please find more details on this matter by visiting my website www.andreaspetroudis.com article 9 and article 13). With this in mind, should we curse the provisions of the guarantees for the Invasion of Turkey, or the combination of the Coup d'état with President Makarios' misleading and pre-agreed speech about Greece's alleged military invasion of Cyprus?

3. «Suggestions on further concessions with the attribution of political equality to the Turkish Cypriots».

How did we end up, before even going to the Five-Party Conference, to call on the Ambassadors of the International Factor, to promote our suggestions for the concessions we are about to make on the political equality with the Turkish Cypriots? Must they clarify whether they mean that the votes of the Greek Cypriots, (80%), should have the same representation as the votes of the Turkish Cypriots, (18%)? If the foreign ambassadors have proposed this to us, we should reject it with the simple question of what kind of political equality they have in their own country. In a democratic state, such as theirs and ours, every citizen should have the same rights and obligations as any other, regardless of his or her nationality and / or religion? When though this unjust irregularity is proposed by our own leadership, what do we expect the foreign ambassadors to answer? Turkey will probably say that since you made this concession in an official manner in the presence of foreign ambassadors, before the negotiations, I will keep that in hand, but I will grand no consideration. In such a case, as in previous similar cases, you will come in retrospect to tell us that you have been tricked by foreign factors and the matter will close. The loss on the case of the future of our Fatherland will remain though.

We have had the same issue with the allegations about proposals from our Leadership for solution with the creation of two states. It is a good thing that with the European Union's statement, that they do not accept a two-state solution, we may have been cleared of this risk, even temporarily. Who could even imagine though, that our Leadership could suggest such a proposal?

4. Positivity in setting a timeline.

With regard to the positivity expressed in setting a time frame for a solution, I would like to reiterate the view, that for 47 years we have been gnawing at time with inactivity and with our respective concessions and we prevented any proposal for a solution that contained the right of return of Turkish Cypriots and / or the exchange of properties. Now why so much haste to close the Cyprus issue, with prevailing reports on our side about the surrender of the occupied part of Cyprus for the creation of a state controlled by Turkey, and suggestions for further concessions such as the attribution of political equality to the Turkish Cypriot community, and others? Could it be that you are so anxious to ensure as soon as possible the permanence of the fait accompli of the Invasion, because you may feel that with the international unrest in our region, there may be a possibility that your plans may be overturned?

5. Exemption from Turkish occupation and Turkish troops.

You are telling us that you want to get rid of the Turkish occupation and the occupying troops. But tell us how do you expect to get rid of the Turkish occupation when, for 47 years to the present day, not only did we not ask for the liberation of our occupied homeland and the withdrawal of its troops, with appeals to International Organizations, but we have not even brought to the international arena the enormous problem that Turkey has created for us by the occupation, the displacement, the change of demographic character, etc. Do you really consider that all the manipulations and concessions made to date, as well as those we are now informed about, are in line with your stated desire for the liberation of the Fatherland? Are you saying all these to caress the ears of the aching people? Even now, why not go to the Five-Party Conference and claim with documentation the liberation and vindication of our small country, citing its internationally recognized independent and unified entity as a Member State of the United Nations and as a Member State of the European Union ? Why do you not invoke the application of International Law and the European vested interests, to assert the rights of refugees? It is clear that both the displaced refugees and the beneficiaries of the Invasion of Turkey, know what everyone wants. Displaced people clearly say what they want and what should be done to secure them, while it seems that others may be throwing smoke at us by saying that they are interested in the same issues, while in practice they are promoting their own different goals.

When will we finally reflect on our responsibilities towards the Fatherland and those who sacrificed their lives and their families, under conditions of continuous occupation for millennia, to deliver to us this island of Saints and Hellenism. Temporary benefits will disappear quickly, while our responsibilities towards the Fatherland and towards our ancestors and especially towards our descendants, will follow us through generations. Then we'll understand that all these people are going to spit on us and curse us for years and years to come. What anguish and what suffering !!!

Good Resurrection,
