MFA protests to UN over fresh Turkish provocations in buffer zone

Cyprus Foreign Ministry has protested to the UN over new Turkish provocations in the buffer zone against villagers who attempted to cultivate their land in the buffer zone at the village of Deneia. Problems emerged in the past months as well and the Ministry was in contact with the UN to find solutions.

A press release by the MFA says that the Ministry monitors the situation in cooperation and collaboration with other authorites of the Republic.

It is pointed out that what is of priority is the restoration of the rights of farmers and the free access to and cultivation of their land under conditions of full security.

Cyprus has been divided since 1974, when Turkey invaded and occupied its northern third.
