President Mustafa Akinci’s proposal on the territory chapter at the recent round of Cyprus talks in Switzerland, “wrecked” President Anastasiades’ “dream” that 100 thousand Greek Cypriots will return to their homes under Greek Cypriot administration, Turkish Cypriot daily ‘Diyalog’ reports.

Noting that Akinci proposed that Turkish Cypriot territory comprises 29.2% of a newly federated state, the paper reports that 55 thousand Greek Cypriot could return according to this proposal and not 100 thousand as President Anastasiades wants.

According to information cited by the paper, the Greek Cypriot side asked for the return of uninhabited areas such as the fenced-off city of Varosha/Maras and the buffer zone, as of the very first day of the solution. It also asked for the coastlines to be adjusted according to the size of the constituent states.

This proposal means that 28% of the TRNC’s coastline, which is currently 57%, would go to the Greek Cypriots”, the paper argues.
