As the United States looks to navigate relations with Turkey, the lack of a clear destination for the relationship will result in a good deal of unpredictability and some level of instability in regions such as the Eastern Mediterranean. In his latest piece in Kathimerini, Endy Zemenides makes the case that this lack of predictability will pose a particular problem for Cyprus, where the United States has a tortured history of trying to have it both ways. In light of Turkish President Erdogan’s visit to the occupied part of the island and Turkey’s plans for the fenced off ghost town of Varosha, Endy Zemenides argues that the US must make it clear that it will not tolerate Turkey’s continued intransigence on Cyprus.

Endy Zemenides is the Executive Director of the Hellenic American Leadership Council.
