The island of Cyprus need look no further afield than Europe when looking for a tried and tested, workable solution. For 25 years, the island of Ireland has seen steady peace thanks to the Good Friday Agreement. It is a blueprint for how two countries can co-exist on one island successfully. 

If the island of Ireland can do it – why not Cyprus? Moreover, if Kosovo can seek its independence from Serbia through the courts, surely it is just double-standards to invalidate the TRNC pursuing its own independence through such means?
