Cyprus problem.

Submitted by Hayden Roberts, Jan 17, 2017 16:05

Dear Mr.Recep, Right there is a problem in Cyprus? Though I know you do not want to pull out, I have some reasons you SHOULD! One reason, is that I know you want to join EU,NATO,or UN, and Cyprus is their ally, so if you don't pull out, you wont be in, and then they will have to use force! Secondly, if you end up keeping Cyprus, you might invade other countries in the alliances, and all of them will declare war on you. Lastly, you could join the alliances, then when your attacked by A strong country like Russia, they could help you. Sincerely Hayden R, 4th grade, Boston Massachusetts.


spot on!

I am a Turk, I am an Australian and i am Muslim .

It saddens me to see the state of my once beautiful country.I see it slowly being transformed into a Arabic state. though I can take a deep relieved breath, knowing that other people see the the plight of ATATURKS people, religion and sate should never mix but erdogan is achieving this.

Iam greatful that there is some inlightened, educated people that still have a strong voice


i dn't agree

You have been the translator to many of Turkish people too. I can't recognize Turkey anymore, its so sad.. Turkish nation had been so lucky having a leader like Ataturk, now almost losing him. Growing anti American ideas in Turkey just because people think that USA is behind him.
