Cyprus (in Greek Kypros Κυπρος; and in Turkish Kıbrıs) is an island in the Mediterranean Sea, 113 kilometres (70 miles) south of Turkey.
Politically, Cyprus has been an independent state, the Republic of Cyprus, since 1960, apart from two enclaves retained by the United Kingdom as "sovereign bases." Since 1974 the northern third of the island has been under military occupation by Turkey.
Cyprus is geographically in Southwest Asia, but many Greek-speaking Cypriots assert that they are a part of Europe mainly due to the fact that the majority of its inhabitants are of European extraction and as such are both culturally and politically closer to Europe than Asia.

 CYPRUS PROBLEM: Historical Background
In the nineteen-fifties post-World War II era of decolonisation and claims to self-determination, the United Kingdom nonetheless declared that Cyprus would never be independent and was subject to claims by Turkey (despite the latter's unconditional renunciation in the 1923 Treaty of Lausanne of any claim to Cyprus).
The inflexible constitution of 1960 not only denied the 82% of the population who were Greek Cypriots their legitimate right to self-determination in the shape of that long-desired union with their motherland, Greece, but in practice even denied the great majority of the population the possibility of effective self-government and internal democracy.
Whatever the rights and the wrongs, actual or assumed, which preceded this turning point, the magnitude of the catastrophe and the massive suffering, ferociously and mercilessly inflicted by Turkey, was so grossly disproportionate as to vitiate any claim that she was acting in aid of the Turkish Cypriots.
