Turkish Cypriots wish to live in their own zone and not to mingle with the Greek Cypriots. Let no one have the illusion that they wish to go back to the Greek part of Cyprus. President Denktash is their chosen leader; he reflects their views and represents their aspirations.
The hardly 'friendly' coexistence of Greek and Turkish Cypriots living here in England is not because of their 'love of each other'. It is due to the sense of security that results from the feeling that neither one can harbour designs to dominate the other under a just and neutral third power.
Allow both communities in Cyprus equal opportunities to run their own affairs, within their own sectors, in liberty and without the fear of being dominated by the other. Stop opposing anything called 'Turkish'. Stop arming against them and intimidating them. Then you will see a peaceful Cyprus in harmony.
There cannot be co-existence if Greek Cypriot enmity and opposition to everything and anything Turkish continues.
