No, it's not bad news. It's a realization that a country, rather than expand its borders, chose to exclude a population that it perceives as troublesome, even to the point of having less territory.

The Greek Cypriots are overwhelmingly Greek Orthodox with some smaller Christian churches making up the rest. Turkish Cypriots are almost all Muslim.

I think this is the wave of the future in countries that are close to large Muslim populations. Why change your country to accomodate a group that, throughout the world, typically refuses to assimilate?
