Abstract

International politics creates international law, but also international law draws the framework of international politics (for majority of the states). Cyprus issue is one of the long lasting unsolved problems of the last century. EU has made its one of the biggest historical mistakes by accepting unsolved “Cyprus” and also violated international law. After the civil politics of Turkey and the results of Annan Plan, advantage exactly dovetailed to the Turkish side, although it is the turn of the EU to play and they do not play. After the ICJ’s decision on Kosovo’s unilateral declaration of independency, TRNC gained a huge advantage on the negotiation table and also an innovative Neo-Wilsonist path reopened in international arena. Now, it is possible for TRNC to be recognized by many countries like Kosovo succeeded by 73, if she and Turkey desire it while Turkey is in the UNSC and thanks to its tailor made diplomacy. Even if they do not follow Kosovo sample, it has undoubtedly cut in favor TRNC and Turkey.
