Unfortunately Greeks and Turkish are natural enemies and I think we will always be.

Is Cyprus more Greek or Turkish??? It’s is culturally Greek but it’s not part of Greece.the entire island and the republic of Cyprus is part of the European Union, though this does not apply to the northern portion of the island as it is under Turkish control.

Turkey will lose. They won the battle but not the war to come. Bring it on mongol Turks we're not the same people. Your central Asians. And Greeks are European we've defended Europe for 2,900 years. You you took half of Cyprus illegally and you took Constantinople illegally but guess what the west will win

Cyprus is very smart ! They fought against what is so called (turkey)🐔 but they develop the economy . Cyprus joined the EU and became richer then turkey cypriot citizens have the right to visit any country in the eu thanks to shengen zone ! Cyprus didnt wast money on buying pile of f16 fighters like (turkey) . But instead cyprus exploited the money on banking infrastracture ,tourism and manifacturing

will never be in battle !!! even if Greece constantly provokes us. they are our little brother. In television and newspapers, hate and anger should be abandoned. The Turks and Greeks were together for centuries in Ottoman and Byzantine. there are assimilated Turks in greece (Turcopoles). yogurt, baklava, dolma and many cultural things belong to the Turks. Greeks are unnecessary nationalist, oppressive and reactionary people. 500 years of Ottoman sovereignty. similar culture and near dna 💖

Turkey has made the 1974 July Intervention on the basis of London and Zurich Agreements since it is a guaranteur country like Greece and the UK. Because the above-mentioned countries have restrained to act together with Turkey in 1974, Turkey has made this legal intervention as Archbishop Makarios explained at the UN Security Council meeting after he left Cyprus. As a result of the legal intervention, the lives of innocent people regardless of their ethnic and national origin have been saved. Please remember the civil war after Bloody-handed Nicos Sampson coup de'ta rebel against the official President makarios, and killing and butchering so many Greek and Greek Cypriots each other.

I'm from Turkey and I think that three countries are to be blamed on Cyprus issue: Turkey, Greece and the UK. They caused all the hatred and missery on Cyprus. I hope that Cyprus will be united and free from any sort of military or political intervention of any foreign countries. Greetings to Greeks and Cypriots from Turkey.

If you hadn't attempted to commit genocide to the Turkish Cypriots, Cyprus could still be yours. It's all your fault. You trust your friends in Europe, but there is one thing you forgot : We are Turks. Even if the whole world declares war on us, we will never leave our brothers alone.

A lot of comments here about how cyprus is this or that.. cyprus is an independent state now so stop the dividing. Just like Malta it has a heterogeneous population but this doesn’t mean you have to fight each other. Just develop your country and you won’t need the support of anyone else. Politics don’t care about your culture or religion, they just want your territory.

In Serbia we have a saying "Feed your dog well so he can bite you harder". Meaning dogs are not trust worthy, but I say it's an insult for dogs. History teaches us that there can be no peace between Turks and us. Only christians they want to see are dead or enslaved ones! 🇬🇷🇷🇸🇨🇾🇬🇪🇦🇲

Before 1878 when Cyprus was sold by the occupiers Turks to the British ,in Cyprus the population was mainly Greek Cypriots and a few so called Turkish Cypriots !!In actual fact, those few Turkish Cypriots actually were ORIGINALLY,by birth GREEK CYPRIOTS!!!!I I will explained how they became Turkish!!!!As I said Cyprus ,Was Occupied by Turks ,and the Attalia Turkish Governor ,was Governor of Cyprus as well!!!He issued a declaration to the Greek Cypriots ,that they had two Choices about their Properties ,mainly land !!! First ! In order to Keep their land ,they should change their religion from Christians TO Muslems ,and so many Christians changed on paper only to Muslems and so they kept their properties untouched! The Other option was to Donate their Properties and Land to the Christian Monasteries,!! And that is up till now most Monasteries ,Greek Orthodox ,are Very Rich and Own huge amounts of LAND !!!! Point of Interest !!!!! When I was still at University in London ,I had as friends many Turkish Cypriots ,who invited to their parents
Kallis Family (1 month ago)
Who invited me to their parents house !!!Entering their houses ,I faced something that surprised immensely !!An Icon of a Christian Saint ,with a Light Candle in front of the Icon !!!!Exactly as Us Orthodox Christians DO !!! And they also told me ,that whenever they go to CYPRUS , they always go to the Monastery of Saint ANDREAS, which is in the Turkish occupied part of Cyprus ,and they pray and light CANDLES,the same as us Greeks DO!!! And they believe in ST ANDREAS and in other Chrisrians Orthodox Saints !!!

How about people learn here Cyprus is Greek and it's own thing Cyprus wanted to join Greece but turkey complained but for all fairness it would be independent until 1974 turkey invaded with a horrible excuse and they killed many Greek women children and men there's a book called Cyprus or escape from Cyprus where Greeks were killed and Albania claiming Greek is Albanian and turkey? South Albania(northern Epirus) is Greek and always was. In the end turkey or Greece don't own Cyprus but Cyprus is mainly Greek. Support from Greece Russia Armenia and Georgia! 🇬🇷🇬🇷🇬🇪🇬🇪🇦🇲🇦🇲🇷🇺🇷🇺 and Kurdistan is its own thing. Kosovo is Serbia. Constantinople is Greek and so is western Anatolia. Republic of srpska is Serbia and FYROM is Slavic half of it Bulgarian have Greece and other part of it Albanian

Either you are Greek or Turkish, if u hate each other for historical complicated conflicts, then you are a nationalist moron. Don't get me wrong, being nationalist is not a bad thing. But being moron nationalist is a serious issue. And as a matter of fact, most of nationalist people are moron. goes same for both countries. ~~ About the island; conflicts between 2 ethnic groups in the area are not just for 70s. even at 60s there were conflicts. Actually European countries were on the benefits of Turks on the island because of bullying stuff. as I know, Greek politicians and Greek politic conflicts caused more conflicts on the island. EU was still with Turkey. AS IT MENTIONED HERE, Island were %80 Greeks. so as a military power Turkish people had almost nothing. Thus, Turkish people were dying and suffering much more than Greek people, u can google eoka. When numbers felt like " its time " Turkish government decided to invade island. Maybe today, this crisis is about politic/military powers in the area. But back then it was just saving Turkish people's lives. It cost some Greek lives too ofc. Well, war is always bad. But I believe Greek politicians caused that invasion. They couldn't handle the conflict. I am not a nationalist but I beileve Turkey did the good thing. Invasion was for saving Turks on the island. ( just google and check how Turks suffered from Greek extreme nationalists on the island before ) But today conflicts and murders are over and I don'T think they will occur again. Cyprus should be a united, independent country.

I think you're talking about patriotism in the beginning, it's okay to be patriotic to your country, but being nationalist is another level.

Biggest mistake the turks done was allowing the orthodox to continue in cyprus after winning the island in 1570+. The second mistake was not getting rid of eoka and enosis completely from the island in 1974. Of course uk , usa and europe being turk haters as usual ,refusing to read into past history . 500 years on and here we are ignorant stupid people questining Turkeys so called illegal occupation of north cyprus. Turkeys the legal owner of cyprus from 1570 and not 1974. In theory they should be owners of whole island and not some 20 -30 % .

🇵🇰 Pakistan stands with Turkey🇹🇷 & Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus. In fact Pakistan had recognized TRNC before but withdrew it's recognition after UN resolution 541 and Pakistan was the only UNSC member which voted against this resolution. Turkish Cypriots deserve a country of their own or annexation by Turkish Republic.

Cyprus ( Kypros / Κύπρος ) from kyein (κυείν) + proorizo (προορίζω). = Greek for "Destines birth". The names "Cyprus" and "Cypriot" describe the ability of the Greek Goddess Aphrodite. One of the main deities of the Greek Pantheon. Her religion was created on the island by Cypriots. The city of Pafos is considered her birthplace. Ancient Greek Cypriots were also calling the Goddess, "Anassa", which means "queen" in ancient Greek. Homer in his poems Iliad and Odyssey calls Aphrodite, Cypriot. The poems before Iliad and Odyssey are called "Cypriot Poems" and describe the facts that took place before the Trojan war, when Aphrodite offered that magical fruit to Paris in order to seduce Helena. The Cypriot Poems were probably written by Homer or by his son-in-law Stasinos, a Greek Cypriot poet. Moreover all the cities of Cyprus were founded by ancient Greeks according to ancient historians and this was proven by modern archaeologists from Sweden and Britain nowadays. Turks first arrived in Cyprus in the 1570's CE when they invaded brutally with the Ottoman Empire in cities that never belonged to the Turkish culture. Cyprus is a huge part of the Hellenic civilisation!

it was subsequently occupied by several major powers, including the empires of the Assyrians, Egyptians and Persians, from whom the island was seized in 333 BC by Alexander the Great. Subsequent rule by Ptolemaic Egypt, the Classical and Eastern Roman Empire, Arab caliphates for a short period, the French Lusignan dynasty and the Venetians, was followed by over three centuries of Ottoman rule between 1571 and 1878 (de jure until 1914). It's not only Greek.

As a Turk i can say the turkish invasion right because of the some radical nationalist greek attacks. But anyway, the island should belong it it's own people and both of turkey and greece should leave them alone. We made a true decision by protecting our people but it should not take so long time to reunite the island and recreate the peace
