Transforming Turkey into a Bizonal Bicommunal Federation with Kurds

Reader Discussion - 10th December to 16th December 2009:

Reader comments (Cyprus-related) about the recent EU Enlargement Committee and Foreign Ministers COREPER Decision about its decision regarding the Assessment of Turkey's Accession Process.

The article itself (link) ads little to enlighten much, but the discussion in the 'reader comments' deserve reading through, and do note that the page is interactive, allowing you to vote in favour of (but not against) comments you like (and if you create an account, can add your own comments to the continuing discussion)

Quoting from one of the latest entries:

"I predict that Turkey will not survive unscathed the most recent Kurdish revolt as a result of the ban of the pro Kurdish party.

"In my mind, if it was possible in Cyprus, then it is certainly possible in Turkey to be speaking of the transformation of the Turkish Republic into a bi-zonal, bi-communal federation, if only to save it from partition, as the ONLY SOLUTION TO AN EVER INCREASING KURDISH AWARENESS."
