  • Description

    EARLY YESTERDAY MORNING (SATURDAY) THE TURKISH SHIP "BASSARA" ARRIVED IN FAMAGUSTA HARBOUR. IT BROUGHT 289 TURKISH SOLDIERS TO CYPRUS TO REPLACE AN EQUAL NUMBER OF THE TURKISH CONTINGENT ALREADY STATIONED THERE.

    THE TURKISH CONTINGENT IN CYPRUS IS THE CENTRE OF THE LATEST DIPLOMATIC SPLIT BETWEEN THE TWO COUNTRIES. LAST WEEK PRESIDENT MAKARIOS AGREED THE WITHDRAWAL OF THE PERMANENTLY STATIONED GREEK AND TURKISH TROOPS ON THE ISLAND TO THEIR BARRACKS.

    MR. ISMET INONU, THE TURKISH PRIME MINISTER, REJECTED THE CYPRUS GOVERNMENT'S ORDER SAYING THAT THE TURKISH TROOPS, NOW STATIONED ON THE NICOSIA-KYRENIA ROAD, WOULD NOT BE WITHDRAWN UNTIL "SECURITY AND CONSTITUTIONAL ORDER " WERE COMPLETELY RESTORED THROUGHOUT THE ISLAND.

    THE CYPRUS GOVERNMENT THEN ANNOUNCED THAT ITS TREATY OF ALLIANCE WITH GREECE AND TURKEY WAS CONSIDERED TERMINATED. A GOVERNMENT STATEMENT SAID THAT PRESIDENT MAKARIOS BY LETTER HAD INFORMED MR. INONU THAT "IN CONSEQUENCE OF FUNDAMENTAL VIOLATIONS THEREOF BY TURKEY, THE TREATY OF ALLIANCE HAD CEASED TO BE IN FORCE AND TO BIND THE REPUBLIC."
    THE U.N. MEDIATOR, MR. TUOMIOJA, ARRIVED IN CYPRUS LAST THURSDAY AND HAS ALREADY STARTED WORK ON SOLVING THE CRISIS. THE FIRST BATCH OF SWEDISH TROOPS TO JOIN THE PEACE FORCE HAVE ALSO ARRIVED. BUT STILL THE SHOOTING GOES ON. TODAY (SUNDAY) FIRING BROKE OUT AROUND THE TURKISH-CYPRIOT VILLAGE OF MANSCURA.
