Akinci wins North Cyprus presidential election
Quote:Voters in the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus have elected Mustafa Akinci as their new president.

Mr Akinci, standing as an independent, won 60.3% of the votes in Sunday's runoff, according to election commission figures.

The 67-year-old defeated incumbent President Dervis Eroglu, a conservative elected five years ago.

He has said he would work with renewed urgency to find a peace deal on Cyprus after four decades of division.

RE: Akinci wins North Cyprus presidential election
With the papal approval of the existence of an Armenian genocide, the 100k march in L.A., it seems interesting (new) winds are blowing from the Occident towards Constantinople.

Putin knew how to position himself, while it seems that official Washington is playing their perpetual good cop-bad cop game.

Just toying with some theories here. It isn't the first time the US is using the Caucasus region as an strategic point.
