40 years of military occupation by a NATO country of a European Union country!!!!!!

Reader comment on item: Forty Years after the Invasion of Cyprus
in response to reader comment: Turkey's 40 year military aggression against the Republic of Cyprus

Submitted by kyriakos Michaelides (Cyprus), Jul 23, 2014 at 04:31

The UN the EU, and many other international organizations have condemned Turkey for the disaster that the Turkish army has inflicted on Cyprus in 1974. Numerous resolutions have been passed by many international bodies in regards to this. Why then 40 years later we still have the occupation of a European Union country by another European country. I believe that the answer is in the fact that all these well meaning organizations and countries that want to help solve this problem, have, wanting to be fair brokers, equalized the blame, equally between the aggressor and the victim. No solid action was taken by the UN, the US, the EU, and all other international bodies that have both political or military influence, to force Turkey to do anything.

Even Russian that has always supported the reunification of Cyprus,and has always voted at the security council in a very positive way to help solve this problem,never did anything more to pressure Turkey. Turkey is Russia's biggest trading partner. Maybe the finding of Gas in the territorial waters of Cyprus,may make Cyprus important, and all the powerful of the world will finally realize the terrible suffering,which continues 40 years later,that Turkey continues to inflict on the people of Cyprus.
