Which ""Cyprus"" ? ? ? The island Cyprus is divided, the Turkish occupied north is separated from the Greek south by a wall / fence through the middle of the island. Ten thousands of Turkish families from the Anatolia mainland were brought there ! There is oly 1 checkpoint. So clearly write or speak whenever the discussion mentions ""Cyprus"", WHICH PART of Cyprus. Compare with "Macedonia" versus Greek Macedonia and Arab Palestine versus Jewish Palestine. Or "Holland" versus "The Netherlands".. Saxon Netherlands is not Holland ! I certainly assume that Turkish-Cyprus is recognising western Palestine as a state..
