  • [01] Turkish invasion of Cyprus in 1974 the biggest crime in Europe in second half of 20th century, Cyprus envoy says

    The Ambassador of Cyprus to Athens George Georgis said on Sunday the Turkish invasion of Cyprus in 1974 was the biggest crime perpetrated in Europe in the second half of the 20th century.

    Georgis was addressing a memorial service held at the Athens Cathedral in memory of those who lost their lives during the tragedy of Cyprus on the occasion of the 31st anniversary of the coup and the Turkish invasion of Cyprus.

    He added that with the pretext of protecting the Turkish minority, which constitutes 18 percent of the population, Turkey occupied 37 percent of the territory of Cyprus and carried out the greatest national cleansing campaign, in relation to the size of the population, in modern European history.

    Georgis reminded that the rejection of the Annan plan by 76 percent of the people of Cyprus was not a denial of the solution. It was the denial of the acceptance and legalisation of the invasion's fait accomplis.

    The memorial service was organised by the Athens Municipality, the Cyprus Embassy and the Federation of Cypriot Organisations in Greece.
