No reunificatian of Cyprus

THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP)--Talks to reunify war-divided Cyprus have failed, U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan announced Tuesday as he left all-night negotiations with Greek and Turkish leaders on the Mediterranean island.

``We have reached the end of the road,'' Annan said, signaling the end of months of intense efforts to reunite the island split into Greek and Turkish sides since 1974.

Well, this means that only the 'Greek part' of Cyprus can join the EU.
Besides, howver, it means that we must live onwards with the status quo and all the related problems. [ Cyprus has been split since Turkey invaded in 1974 in the wake of an abortive coup by supporters of union with Greece. The breakaway state in the north, about one-third of the island, is only recognized by Turkey, which maintains 40,000 troops there. ]

Another example of politicans, who forget the people they represent (see:http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/2607099.stm )
