Bor, I'll continue this discussion in English though we could just as easily switch to Dutch :) But that would be kind of rude to the rest here. Thanks for agreeing with me on the first point. On the second however, I still disagree with you. In 1974 Turkey attacked and occupied 33% of Cyprus. Since then they have settled more than 100.000 settlers, mainly from Anatolia, on the island. This was. mainly, to make sure that, in case that there ever be a reunification, the demographic balance of the island would be more in favor of Turkey. I saw that, in other posts, you relied on wikipedia to stress you points. I suggest you read http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyprus. Even this page agrees that the role of Turkey on Cyprus is that of an occupation force. I was on Cyprus during the referendum. It was obvious why the Greek-Cypriots voted against Kofi's plan. The plan did not allow for the displaced Greeks to be compensated and allowed continued Turkish presence... Thank you.
