Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The British troop issue is off-the-table as long as the Cyprus problem is still there. Antagonizing the Brits is useful only in terms of friendly threats.

But do you think the quoted part did mean the Brits, too?

If we are here, do the Turkish Cypriots and their political leaders have any opinion on the British presence in the South?

No, these guys simply do not change policy from administration to administration. It's such a small place. Strategically, taking on the Brits on this is ill-advised.
