What a shame that all previous attempts by both 'sides' over the years have all failed to produce a settlement leading to a united island. Now, it looks as if the time for this may have slipped by.

What you fail to see or dont want to see is Turkeys aim is partition, no more no less, Turkey does not want Turkish cypriots to run the country they want The north of Cyprus to be a province of Turkey,
