Turkish press to Holguin for an early stalemate

Must read

Τουρκικo πρΕσιγνκ προσ Ολ γκiν για πρoωρο αδιeξοδο

The Turkish side is putting pressure in the direction of Maria Angela Holgin Quesyar aiming to declare an early stalemate. The role of the villain was assumed by Tahsin Ertugruloglou who, through his interventions, conveys publicly what Ankara wants to say and which, at least at the present stage, avoids it.

The so-called “foreign minister” of the occupying regime called on Holguin (source Gunes/GTP) to inform the Secretary General of the United Nations that there is no common ground between the two sides and not to wait for the six months to complete.  In his statements, Ertugruloglou was sufficiently clear as to how the Turkish side sees, as a whole, the whole effort of the United Nations. He said that Ankara and the Turkish Cypriot leadership are acting together “step by step” and their approach from the beginning is that “there is no and there will be no common ground”. He indicated that what he says has nothing to do with creating obstacles in the whole effort but is a record of the realities.

The Turkish side obviously wants, through the new effort in the Cyprus issue, to achieve what it has put on the negotiation table since April 2021, which is, on the one hand, the recognition of the sovereign equality of the Turkish Cypriots and, on the other hand, to lead things to a two state solution. He argued that if a policy based on “realities” is followed, first of all “the status that the Greek Cypriot side uses unjustly called the Republic of Cyprus should be abolished”. He also mentioned that “as long as the Greek Cypriot side continues to use this regime” who can talk about the existence of common territory. He wondered how Ms. Holguin could find common ground in six months when the United Nations had been unable to achieve anything similar for sixty years.

 Claiming that the necessary lessons should be learned from the overnight collapse of the 1960 Democracy which was guaranteed and based on political equality, the so-called minister added:

“Political equality is non-negotiable of course. We must be well aware of the following and accept that in order for the political equality we demand to mean anything, it must be based on sovereign equality. If we don't learn this lesson from what happened to the cooperative of 1960, it means that we have such a weakness”.

Ertugruloglou then asserted that if the desire is to continue the climate of peace and tranquility in the Eastern Mediterranean, a policy and a future must be formed based on the “realities of the island” and reiterated that this future will only be formed with good neighborly relations of two separate sovereign states by accepting the existence of two separate national identities, two separate states, two separate democracies and two separate sovereignties.

He claimed that supporting a policy based on the existence of two separate sovereign states does not create a problem on the island and that “with the cooperation of the two separate sovereign states we can live very well in peace and tranquility”. 

Referring to the statement of President Christodoulidis that “the common ground is the federation and we do not discuss on any basis other than that”, Ertugruloglou said that then there will be no common ground and added: “I mentioned the same things in Ankara. No opinion was expressed by anyone to the contrary. Our line on the national issue is known. It is not possible for some to rise as equals from a table that sat at the base of inequality”.

The ball at the feet of the UN

Ertugruloglou proceeds to continuous announcements and statements about anything concerning the Cyprus issue. In other statements he referred to the issue of Pyla and the freezing of the construction of the road from the mixed village to the occupied Arsos. The so-called “foreign minister” of the regime said (source Cyprus/GTP) that “the ball is in the feet of the United Nations”.  He said that “whether the break given to the construction of the road will be permanent or temporary depends on the attitude that the United Nations will follow in the future”.

Characterizing the fact that the United Nations prevented the implementation of the project, Ertugruloglou said that as part of an agreement with the Peacekeeping Force, they notified the UN of the route of the road and construction resumed in October.
