Territory and maps on the table in Geneva today

11 January 2017

The two sides in the Cyprus Summit will be presenting maps illustrating proposed territorial adjustments today.

The Turkish Cypriot side has proposed keeping 29.2% of the land but whether or not this includes Guzelyurt/Morphou is hard to say. If Guzelyurt is not to be returned this will mean more villages will be returned, although this would affect fewer occupants.

At the moment both sides remain tight-lipped, however diplomatic sources say that to gain Guzelyurt, the Greek Cypriot side would need to agree to a rotating presidency. In other words there would need to be a significant trade off from both sides to make any headway.
