    Members of the European Parliament expressed their support to the legitimate inhabitants of the Turkish occupied town of Famagusta to return to their hometown.

    The MEPs attended an event at the European Parliament in Brussels organized by the Famagusta Municipality. During the event a short film was presented about Famagusta, its history and culture.

    The MEPs expressed their support for the return of the fenced off city of Varosha to its legitimate inhabitants, who were forced to flee in 1974 due to the Turkish invasion.

    They also underlined that Turkey, a country aspiring to become a full EU member state, illegally occupies 37% of the territory of an EU member state, namely the Republic of Cyprus.

    Famagusta Mayor Alexis Galanos said that the return of the town of Famagusta constitutes a European responsibility adding that Famagusta, a European town, is occupied by Turkish troops.

    Spanish MEP and member of the EP Petitions Committee, Willy Meyer Pleite, who visited Cyprus last November as part of an EP delegation, said he experienced himself the denial of the Turkish army to the legitimate inhabitants to enter their home town.

    Chairman of the EP Committee on Petitions Marcin Libicki pledged that the final report would include clear references on Turkeys responsibilities and the relevant UNSC resolutions.
