End-game pains

YUSUF KANLI writes:

Recent news reports indicate that Greek Foreign Minister Nicos Kotzias sent a letter on April 7 to U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres in which he sharply criticized Espen Barth Eide, the U.N. chief’s special adviser on Cyprus, accusing him, inter alia, of acting to promote the interests of the Turkish side. This is not the first time that Eide or his predecessors has faced such criticism.

Janissary music

YUSUF KANLI writes:

Espen Barth Eide, the U.N. secretary-general’s special Cyprus envoy, will soon be meeting the leaders of the two peoples of Cyprus, to explain that many years of United Nations-sponsored Cyprus talks may be leading to a humiliating failure, perhaps forcing an “embrace of the serpent.”

If you buy it…

YUSUF KANLI writes:

Often, when something really odd is said, or if something impossible to believe is said to have happened, Turks say: “Yeah, if you eat it.” It has the same meaning as the phrase “If you buy it.”
