Peace in Cyprus, has the opportunity to show the world that there is another way. We don't always have to point fingers and seek out a scapegoat. Even where there is little hope, and after 42 years, many Cypriots had lost hope, with determination and drive, anything is possible. I wish the leaders and those involved in the final stages of these peace talks endless luck. If they are successful, it will not only mean a great deal to my family and fellow Cypriots, it will also mean a lot to a world that at times feels like it has lost all hope.
When will we be ready to admit the Turkish model has failed? Maybe never for the implications of this admission are too overwhelming to consider, aren't they? Better to voice our concerns and turn the other cheek. We intervene in countries' domestic affairs only when it is convenient for us not for them, and now really isn't the time, is it?
