[/quote] Supposedly for protecting the Turkish-Cypriot community, since Turkey is, alongside Greece and UK, the guarantor of the island. The excuse was that Cyprus was under threat from the Greek-led coup d'etat against Makarius. They had the right of intervention, but not occupation of almost 40% of the island. Nowadays onnly Turkey recognizes the so-called "Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus". The legitimate Republic of Cyprus (part of the UN, part of the EU etc.) is just "Greek-Cypriot administration". The irony is that Turkey and Israel were so close allies that the Jewish Lobby in the US was doing anything to protect Turkish interests, i.e. Israel was not negotiating with Cyprus on the matter of the EEZ. But after Erdogan's burst against Peres and especially after the "Mavi Marmara" incident, Israel made a 180-degree turn and decided to do so. To this day, only Israel accepts the Greek EEZ according to the UNCLOS. That says something... [/quote] You pretty much sum it up.I agree.Also there were EOKA -a nationalist paramilitary group- killing and oppressing Turkish communities in Cyprus. [/quote]
Greek govt government seems to have decided to submit coordinates for the outer limits of the Greek continental shelf to the United Nations in the first months of 2013. On June 9th 1995, the Turkish parliament officially declared that unilateral action by Greece would constitute a casus belli.
