Foreign Minister Huseyin Ozgurgun has strongly criticized the Greek Cypriot House of Representativesí resolution rejecting guarantorship rights in Cyprus.

`If Turkish troops withdraw from Cyprus now, fighting breaks out and many people die`, Mr Ozgurgun told the NTV news channel.

He said the fact that the Turkish Armed Forces brought peace to the island in 1974 should not be forgotten.

Mr Ozgurgun said that the Greek Cypriots prepared the resolution with the aim of gaining concessions or under the psychological depression in Greece.

I really think it doesn't matter if the Turkish troops, except for a 'token force', left tomorrow!



The GC's wouldn't dare 'start', know the hiding they got last time and their utter dread of the awesome power of the Turkish Airforce - they quake in their shoes even when the Turkish 'Red Arrows' (excuse - forgot the real title!) do their regular and spectacular air displays.



Greece never helped them last time - and never will; and they know it!



However, Turkey may as well open its ports to Cypriot registered vessels - Cypriot registration is only a 'flag of convenience' and the majority of Cy reg'd vessels aren't RoC owned. Turkey's compliance wouldn't make much difference and would gain them much goodwill within the international community.



From an expat retiree's point of view: imagine how many lovely, pristine beaches we might be able to gain easy access to!

There must be a bargaining tool in there somewhere?
