Re: In search of a balanced view
Helen of course you have to dial, address Turkey, etc. when contacting your friends in the North. This is because NTRC cannot develop an internationally recognized phone extention and mail address because the Greek Cypriot Republic of Cyprus blocks this. Would you rather Turkish Cypriots were unable to get mail or receive calls? This is precisely what your president Papadopoulos wants. TC have only one door towards the rest of the world: Turkey. Had the Republic of Cyprus not been so adamant to isolate them into submission, Turkey would not play such a major role in the North. You know this extremely well.
BTW. Settlers and Turkish army do not outnumber Turkish Cypriots.
