A bitter anniversary

YUSUF KANLI writes:

Over 18,000 people perished, tens of thousands left homeless; the industrial heartland of the country was devastated. The Aug. 17, 1999 earthquake and the consequent Dec. 12 tremor were sufficiently bad for a country with a miserable three-way coalition government to slide into a financial crisis, making the 2000-2001 twin financial collapse inevitable.

His wife and two daughters, aged 9 and 11, were delighted.

Two states in the EU

YUSUF KANLI writes:

Everyone has an idea about the intractability of the Cyprus problem as well as the need to find a resolution for it. What kind of settlement should the island have? More than 50 years of intercommunal talks have failed many times in many attempts to resolve the problem

Plan B or what?

YUSUF KANLI writes:

What are Turks trying to do in Cyprus? What might be the aim behind Turkish Cypriot President Mustafa Akıncı’s decision to allow former residents of three Maronite villages to return to their former homes or heralding thousands of former residents of former touristic resort Varosha suburb of Famagusta that permission for their return might be in the cards?
