The Cypriot Puzzle feels that this is a struggle for Cyprus that should unite all Cypriots. At this crucial moment it is important for the Greek Cypriot community to prove to its Turkish Cypriot compatriots that they empathise with their frustration and that they are joining in their strife; a strife that serves the autonomy and sovereignty of the whole island.
