  • [01] Eroglu: Cyprus talks may be launched in the first half of October 2013 Turkish Cypriot daily Vatan (10.07.13) reports that during a meeting with the Young Businessmen's Association (GIAD), Turkish Cypriot leader Dervis Eroglu argued that the Turkish Cypriot side has always approached the solution plans put in front of them with a positive attitude, adding that the Cyprus talks may be launched in the first half of October this year. Eroglu said that a solution should be found in order to safeguard that both "people" can live in tranquillity next to each other, claiming that the expectation of the Turkish Cypriot side is an agreement. Eroglu described the statement by Cyprus President Anastasiades that he only sits at the negotiating table with proposals that has the 75 % support of the Greek Cypriot National Council as wrong, adding that it is impossible to obtain such support. On the same issue, according to illegal Bayrak television (online, 09.07.13), during the meeting with GIAD, Eroglu also said that a possible agreement should be prepared on a win-win basis by the two sides in Cyprus and not by others, adding that any solution plan to be prepared should belong to the two sides on the island and no one else. "We should not wait for another resolution plan to be prepared by the UN Secretary-General. A resolution plan should be prepared by the two parties on the island which will mutually benefit the two sides and two peoples in Cyprus", Eroglu argued. He explained that a solution plan prepared by others may not satisfy the expectations of both sides, claiming that the Turkish Cypriot side will maintain its efforts to ensure a peaceful existence for both peoples on the island.
  • [02] Aspects of the interview of President Anastasiades to Milliyet newspaper Under the title "The Turkish grandfather of the Greek Cypriot leader", Turkish daily Milliyet newspaper (10.07.13) publishes an interview by the President of the Republic of Cyprus Nicos Anastasiades and notes that this is the first time the President spoke to a Turkish paper. The newspaper writes that Anastasiades' father grew up next to a Turkish Cypriot named Ibrahim Sahali who was like a father to him. The paper writes that Anastasiades told a story about a Greek Cypriot police officer with the nickname "Risoto" who received a call in 1974 by Ibrahim Sahali asking him to help his village which was stormed by EOKA members. "Risoto" went to the village and demanded no one to touch any Turkish Cypriot. "Risoto was my father", Anastasiades stated. The paper writes that Anastasiades "who voted in favor for the Annan Plan is still of course in favor of a solution", and notes that Anastasiades while saying that he is aware that finding a solution is urgent, at the same time he knows that haste movements must not be made. He also said that "a solution on paper cannot be achieved" and added that negative feelings must be overcome. Anastasiades also sent a message to the Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan: "Succeeding in the Cyprus problem will safeguard the solution in the region as well as world peace. We have to strive for any effort towards this", he stated. Referring more on the solution process, Anastasiades stated that the Greek Cypriot side firstly focused on the economic crisis. He also said that the Annan Plan remained in the past and there is no intention the launching of the negotiation talks to be delayed any further for some months.
  • [03] A joint statement by trade unions accusing Turkey of wiping out the Turkish Cypriots Turkish Cypriot daily Havadis (10.07.13), reports that Turkish Cypriot Primary Teachers' Union (KTOS), Turkish Cypriot Primary Teachers' Union (KTOEOS), "Turkish Cypriot State Workers' Union" (Cag-Sen), Turkish Cypriot Physicians' Union (Tip-Is) and the "Academic personnel of East Mediterranean University's Union" (Dau-Sen), in a joint announcement issued yesterday, said that "the north part of Cyprus, which is considered an EU territory, is under the administration of Turkey", adding that this is contrary to the founding treaties of the Republic of Cyprus as well as to the Geneva Treaty. In the joint statement, it is said that the "self-styled governments of the breakaway regime administrate the Turkish Cypriots with the decisions and the interferences of Ankara governments", adding that there is a perception in the occupied area of the Republic of Cyprus, which defends the integration and the assimilation and this perception continues to wipe out the Turkish Cypriots, to take their identity and personality and keep them as hostages for bargaining. According to the joint statement, the Turkish Cypriots have been subjected for 30 years now to the same practices that the ruling government of the Justice and Development Party (AKP) and Turkey's Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan have implemented to the Gezi Park demonstrations.
  • [04] "Election campaign" continues in the occupied area of the Republic of Cyprus Today's Turkish press (10.07.13) continues to cover the "election campaign" of the Turkish Cypriot political parties. Turkish Cypriot daily Havadis (10.07.13) reports that the leader of the Social Democracy Party (TDP) Mehmet Cakici referred yesterday to the so-called assembly new faces, adding that their "candidate list" for the "early elections" includes persons, who represent Turkey's people, the Turkish Cypriots, the people from the Black Sea and the Anatolia. Meanwhile, Havadis reported that the leader of the Democrat Party (DP) Serdar Denktas, during his visit to the paper, called on the people who won't go the ballot box because they will boycott the "early elections", not to boycott their own future.
  • [05] Gezi demonstrations continue Turkish daily Today's Zaman (09.07.13) reports that at least 50 people were detained in Istanbul and 16 in Kocaeli province on Monday and Tuesday over the continued Gezi Park protests following the park's eventful reopening to the public Monday evening. Istanbul's Gezi Park was reopened to the public on Monday following three weeks of beautification work, but it was closed shortly after following a new protest on Monday evening. Fifty people, including members of the group Taksim Solidarity and one person who fired a gun during the incident, were detained in events that started at the park on Monday evening. On Tuesday, 16 demonstrators who were protesting Monday's detentions were detained in Kocaeli. Additionally, 13 of 15 people who were detained on Monday in the province of Izmir on suspected involvement in violent acts related to the Gezi Park protests were arrested after their interrogation by police. Another 11 people in Kocaeli were detained in home raids on Monday morning after having attended the Gezi Park protests.

  • [06] Erdogan sues author 0hsan Elia?1k Turkish daily Zaman newspaper (09.07.13) reports that Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan is suing author 0hsan Elia?1k over his accusations against the Turkish leader on Twitter, with the prime minister's lawyers submitting the lawsuit on behalf of Erdogan on Monday. The lawsuit read that Elia?1k accused Erdogan of being a "dictator, a corrupt leader, provocateur, liar and arrogant" on his Twitter account on June 18 during the Gezi Park protests. Elia?1k, who promotes an anti-capitalist interpretation of Islam, also posted on his Twitter account that Erdogan would be toppled by protests on the street and that his ousting from power could be magnificent.

Erdogan's lawyers also argued that through his tweets Elia?1k insulted the personality of the prime minister and aimed to incite hatred toward Erdogan. The lawsuit reads that such heavy insults cannot be considered free speech. TURKISH AFFAIRS SECTION http://www.moi.gov.cy/pio YH
