Regarding the continuation of the unilateral activities in the international arena of the Greek Cypriot administration

We are witnessing a continuation of the unilateral activities in the international arena of the Greek Cypriot administration, under the title of “Republic of Cyprus” which it has usurped since 1963.  The latest example of these activities is the preliminary approval of the European Union (EU) to contribute 101 million Euros towards infrastructure works for [...]

It is very well known that, Motherland Turkey intervened in Cyprus [...]
