Cyprus | Political Map Cyprus | Flag Cyprus

Cyprus has been divided since 1974 when Turkey invaded the north in response to a military coup on the island which was backed by the Athens government.

Once a British colony, Cyprus declared its independence in 1960. However, soon after, tensions erupted between the Turkish Cypriot minority and the Greek Cypriot majority. Subsequently the capital of Nicosia witnessed large-scale violence. In 1974, Greece made an attempt to capture Cyprus. This attracted military intervention from Turkey, which soon controlled more than a third of the island. The year 1983 witnessed the declaration of the Turkish-held area as the "Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus" (TRNC), but it is recognized only by Turkey.
