TAACA and ATAA celebrate the 31st Anniversary of the

Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC)

Nother Cyprus

As the search for a just and sustainable solution on the island of Cyprus continues, it is important to note that the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus is and will continue to be one of the cornerstones of peace, stability and reconciliation.

 

The Turkish Cyprus Intervention of 1974 is one of two modern military interventions that improved human rights and democracy, the other being the British intervention in the Falkland Islands. The Turkish intervention of 1974 toppled the Greek junta in Greece and arrested anti-Turkish and anti-Muslim massacres by the Greek military and Greek Cypriot militias that had been campaigning for Greek and Greek Orthodox Christian homogeneity on the island since 1963 under the ineffective watch of United Nations Security Forces.

 

The Declaration of Independence of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus also extended a hand of friendship to the Greek Cypriots and called for the peaceful resolution of all differences. That invitation of peace and friendship remains today. In a referendum on the island, the overwhelming number of Turkish Cypriots voted for reunification according to the Annan Plan, while an overwhelming of Greek Cypriots voted against reunification.

 

As Americans, we support United States and United Nations policy to encourage a bi-communal, bi-zonal federation on the island based on equal rights for the Turkish Cypriot community. For a summary of the Cyprus dispute 1960 - 1994, please click here to read the fact statement in the federal case of Crist v. Turkey, in which Greek Cypriot land claims against Turkey were dismissed.
