Cyprus: Lessons from the debacle of 2004 and the way ahead
It is now a little over a year since the best chance of settling the Cyprus Problem in the 45 years that it has been on the international community's agenda was accepted by two-thirds of the Turkish Cypriots who voted, and rejected by three-quarters of the Greek Cypriots. This sad ending to nearly five years of intensive negotiations under the aegis of the United Nations, with the full backing of the European Union and all the main external powers which have traditionally played a role in Cyprus—Greece, Turkey, Britain and the USA—with the partial exception of Russia, leaves the island, as it has been now for two generations, divided and a bone of contention, causing problems well beyond its own borders.
