50 years since Turkey took over north Cyprus , in response to a Greek coup declaring Cyprus part of Greece.
At least there’s no ongoing war there, the UN Green line ( set up by a UNSC resolution) holds. Turkey has declared north Cyprus as a sovereign State, not recognised as such by the UN or any other country.
Life goes on, with a US military base in the South. It’s not far from Lebanon and has been used to evacuate foreign citizens, including Australians.
Cyprus has the status of a UN and EU member, now the only EU member not a NATO member.
