The first round of peace talks took place in Geneva , Switzerland between 25 and 30 July , James Callaghan, the British Foreign Secretary, having summoned a conference of the three guarantor powers. There they issued a declaration that the Turkish occupation zone should not be extended, that the Turkish enclaves should immediately be evacuated by the Greeks, and that a further conference should be held at Geneva with the two Cypriot communities present to restore peace and re-establish constitutional government.
In advance of this they made two observations, one upholding the constitution, the other appearing to abandon it. They called for the Turkish Vice-President to resume his functions, but they also noted 'the existence in practice of two autonomous administrations, that of the Greek Cypriot community and that of the Turkish Cypriot community'. By the time that the second Geneva conference met on 14 August , international sympathy which had been with the Turks in their first attack was swinging back towards Greece now that she had restored democracy.
At the second round of peace talks, Turkey demanded that the Cypriot government accept its plan for a federal state , and population transfer. Even if the telephone line is tapped, that would rouse no suspicion. Britain's then foreign secretary later prime minister James Callaghan later disclosed that U. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger "vetoed" at least one British military action to pre-empt the Turkish landing. In the process, many Greek Cypriots became refugees.
The number of refugees is estimated to be between , and , After the conflict, Cypriot representatives and the United Nations consented to the transfer of the remainder of the 51, Turkish Cypriots that had not left their homes in the south to settle in the north, if they wished to do so. The United Nations Security Council has challenged the legality of Turkey's action, because Article Four of the Treaty of Guarantee gives the right to guarantors to take action with the sole aim of re-establishing the state of affairs.
On 13 February , Turkey declared the occupied areas of the Republic of Cyprus to be a "Federated Turkish State", to the universal condemnation of the international community see United Nations Security Council Resolution Turkey was found guilty by the European Commission of Human Rights for displacement of persons, deprivation of liberty, ill treatment, deprivation of life and deprivation of possessions. Turkey has been condemned for preventing the return of Greek Cypriot refugees to their properties.
Having found violations of a number of Articles of the Convention, the Commission notes that the acts violating the Convention were exclusively directed against members of one of two communities in Cyprus, namely the Greek Cypriot community. It concludes by eleven votes to three that Turkey has thus failed to secure the rights and freedoms set forth in these Articles without discrimination on the grounds of ethnic origin, race, religion as required by Article 14 of the Convention.
Enclaved Greek Cypriots in the Karpass Peninsula in were subjected by the Turks to violations of their human rights so that by when the European Court of Human Rights found Turkey guilty of the violation of 14 articles of the European Convention of Human Rights in its judgement of Cyprus v. In the same judgement, Turkey was found guilty of violating the rights of the Turkish Cypriots by authorising the trial of civilians by a military court.
The European commission of Human Rights with 12 votes against 1, accepted evidence from the Republic of Cyprus, concerning the rapes of various Greek-Cypriot women by Turkish soldiers and the torture of many Greek-Cypriot prisoners during the invasion of the island. Many of the atrocities were seen as revenge for the atrocities against Turkish Cypriots in —64 and the massacres during the first invasion. The man was reportedly identified by the victim and two other rapists were also arrested.
Raped women were sometimes outcast from society. Numerous atrocities against the Turkish Cypriot community were committed during the invasion of the island. The Washington Post covered another news of atrocity in which it is written that: The Greeks said that they had been given orders to kill the inhabitants of the Turkish villages before the Turkish forces arrived. In Limassol, upon the fall of the Turkish Cypriot enclave to the Cypriot National Guard, the Turkish Cypriot quarter was burned, women raped and children shot according to Turkish Cypriot and Greek Cypriot eyewitness accounts.
The issue of missing persons in Cyprus took a new turn in the summer of when the UN-sponsored Committee on Missing Persons CMP  began returning remains of identified missing individuals to their families see end of section. However, since , the whole issue of missing persons in Cyprus took a new turn after the Committee on Missing Persons CMP [ citation needed ]  designed and started to implement as from August its project on the Exhumation, Identification and Return of Remains of Missing Persons.
The whole project is being implemented by bi-communal teams of Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriot scientists archaeologists, anthropologists and geneticists under the overall responsibility of the CMP. By the end of , 57 individuals had been identified and their remains returned to their families. The missing persons list of the Republic of Cyprus confirms that 83 Turkish Cypriots disappeared in Tochni on 14 August Some of them were not released and are still missing. In , the government of Cyprus took an American art dealer to court for the return of four rare 6th-century Byzantine mosaics that survived an edict by the Byzantine Emperor, imposing the destruction of all images of sacred figures.
Cyprus won the case, and the mosaics were eventually returned. The mosaics, depicting Saints Thaddeus and Thomas , are two more sections from the apse of the Kanakaria Church, while the frescoes, including the Last Judgement and the Tree of Jesse , were taken off the north and south walls of the Monastery of Antiphonitis , built between the 12th and 15th centuries. According to a Greek Cypriot claim, since , at least 55 churches have been converted into mosques and another 50 churches and monasteries have been converted into stables, stores, hostels, or museums, or have been demolished.
In January , the British singer Boy George returned an 18th-century icon of Christ to the Church of Cyprus that he had bought without knowing the origin. The icon, which had adorned his home for 26 years, had been looted from the church of St Charalampus from the village of New Chorio , near Kythrea , in The icon was noticed by church officials during a television interview of Boy George at his home.
The church contacted the singer who agreed to return the icon at Saints Anargyroi Church, Highgate , north London. Greek Cypriots have claimed that the invasion and subsequent actions by Turkey have been diplomatic ploys, furthered by ultranationalist Turkish militants to justify expansionist Pan-Turkism.
They have also criticized the perceived failure of Turkish intervention to achieve or justify its stated goals protecting the sovereignty, integrity, and independence of the Republic of Cyprus , claiming that Turkey's intentions from the beginning were to create the state of Northern Cyprus. Greek Cypriots condemn the brutality of the Turkish invasion, including but not limited to the high levels of rape, child rape and torture. Greek Cypriots have also claimed that the second wave of the Turkish invasion that occurred in August , even after the Greek Junta had collapsed on 24 July and the democratic government of the Republic of Cyprus had been restored under Glafkos Clerides, did not constitute a justified intervention as had been the case with the first wave of the Turkish invasion that led to the Junta's collapse.
The stationing of 40, Turkish troops on Northern Cyprus after the invasion in violation of resolutions by the United Nations has also been criticized. The United Nations Security Council Resolution , adopted unanimously on 20 July , in response to the Turkish invasion of Cyprus, the Council demanded the immediate withdrawal of all foreign military personnel present in the Republic of Cyprus in contravention of paragraph 1 of the United Nations Charter. The United Nations Security Council Resolution adopted on 16 August declared their respect for the sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity of the Republic of Cyprus, and formally recorded its disapproval of the unilateral military actions taken against it by Turkey.
Makarios described the coup which replaced him as "an invasion of Cyprus by Greece" in his speech to the UN security council and stated that there were "no prospects" of success in the talks aimed at resolving the situation between Greek and Turkish Cypriots, as long as the leaders of the coup, sponsored and supported by Greece, were in power. In Resolution , the Council of Europe supported the legality of the first wave of the Turkish invasion that occurred in July , as per Article 4 of the Guarantee Treaty of ,   which allows Turkey, Greece, and the United Kingdom to unilaterally intervene militarily in failure of a multilateral response to crisis in Cyprus.
The opinion that Turkey historically orchestrated a pretext to the invasion, prevalent within the Greek Cypriot community, is also held by some Turkish Cypriots and promoted by some Turkish Cypriot publications.
Greek-Cypriots who were unhappy with America not stopping the Turkish invasion took part in protests and riots in front of the American embassy. Immediately upon this declaration Britain convened a meeting of the United Nations Security Council to condemn the declaration as "legally invalid". United Nations Security Council Resolution considered the "attempt to create the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus is invalid, and will contribute to a worsening of the situation in Cyprus".
It went on to state that it "Considers the declaration referred to above as legally invalid and calls for its withdrawal". In the following year UN resolution condemned the "exchange of Ambassadors" between Turkey and the TRNC and went on to add that the Security Council "Considers attempts to settle any part of Varosha by people other than its inhabitants as inadmissible and calls for the transfer of this area to the administration of the United Nations".
On 22 July , United Nations' International Court of Justice decided that "International law contains no prohibition on declarations of independence". In response to this non legally binding direction, German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle said it "has nothing to do with any other cases in the world" including Cyprus. The United Nations Security Council decisions for the immediate unconditional withdrawal of all foreign troops from Cyprus soil and the safe return of the refugees to their homes have not been implemented by Turkey and the TRNC.
Negotiations to find a solution to the Cyprus problem have been taking place on and off since Between and , the Turkish Cypriot side was seen by the international community as the side refusing a balanced solution. Since , the situation has been reversed according to US and UK officials, and the Greek Cypriot side rejected a plan which would have called for the dissolution of the Republic of Cyprus without guarantees that the Turkish occupation forces would be removed. Greek Cypriots rejected the UN settlement plan in an April referendum.
The plan, which was approved by a two-to-one margin by the Turkish Cypriots in a separate but simultaneous referendum, would have created a United Cyprus Republic and ensured that the entire island would reap the benefits of Cyprus' entry into the European Union on 1 May. The plan would have created a United Cyprus Republic consisting of a Greek Cypriot constituent state and a Turkish Cypriot constituent state linked by a federal government.
For those whose property could not be returned, they would have received monetary compensation. The entire island entered the EU on 1 May still divided, although the EU acquis communautaire — the body of common rights and obligations — applies only to the areas under direct government control, and is suspended in the areas occupied by the Turkish military and administered by Turkish Cypriots.
However, individual Turkish Cypriots able to document their eligibility for Republic of Cyprus citizenship legally enjoy the same rights accorded to other citizens of European Union states. As a result of the Turkish invasion, the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe stated that the demographic structure of the island has been continuously modified as a result of the deliberate policies of the Turks.
Following the occupation of Northern Cyprus, civilian settlers from Turkey began arriving on the island. Despite the lack of consensus on the exact figures, all parties concerned admitted that Turkish nationals began arriving in the northern part of the island in In a report prepared by Mete Hatay on behalf of PRIO, the Oslo peace center, it was estimated that the number of Turkish mainlanders in the north who have been granted the right to vote is 37, This figure however excludes mainlanders who are married to Turkish Cypriots or adult children of mainland settlers as well as all minors.
The report also estimates the number of Turkish mainlanders who have not been granted the right to vote, whom it labels as "transients", at a further , After the hostilities of , the United States applied an arms embargo on both Turkey and Cyprus. The embargo on Turkey was lifted after 3 years by President Jimmy Carter , whereas the embargo on Cyprus remained in place for longer,  having most recently been enforced on 18 November Media related to Turkish invasion of Cyprus at Wikimedia Commons.
