Eroglu:The effort in Cyprus to bring the“two states”under a partnership roof

Turkish Cypriot daily Kibris newspaper (12.12.14) reports that Turkish Cypriot leader Dervis Eroglu has alleged that there is peace and stability in Cyprus because of the presence of the Turkish [occupation] army, that two “states” exist side by side and that their effort is to bring these two “states” under a common roof.
Addressing a conference yesterday at the illegal Eastern Mediterranean University (“DAU”) in occupied Famagusta under the title “The Cyprus issue with its international dimensions and its future”, Eroglu referred to a “diversification and increase of the number” of players involved in the Cyprus problem, because of the hydrocarbon resources in the area. He argued that this is “a turning point for putting an end to the uncertainty which continues for 50 years”, but expressed the view that the developments on this issue could be turned into both opportunity and threat. He further claimed that the Turkish Cypriot side has been exerting efforts for turning this issue into an opportunity for all sides.  
“The Turkish Cypriot side will not pay any price for the Greek Cypriot side coming to the negotiating table”, he alleged and claimed that the Greek Cypriot side must unconditionally return to the table, which “is the place for solving every dispute”. “We say: Let us either take steps together on the hydrocarbons issue or simultaneously stop our activities and solve the Cyprus problem through negotiations within a short period of time”, he argued.
Eroglu also alleged that the time has come for the Greek Cypriot side to decide whether it is ready to share power and wealth with the Turkish side and to establish a partnership within the framework of a “bi-zonal federal vision”. “If it is not ready, it should come out and say it sincerely”, he added.
Eroglu expressed the view that the interests and the plans of international players are behind the fact that the Cyprus problem has not been solved yet and the Greek Cypriot “intransigence”.
