  • Description

    A NEGOTIATING TEAM ATTACHED TO THE UNITED NATIONS PEACE FORCE IN CYPRUS TODAY (TUESDAY), IS ATTEMPTING TO RUN AN OVERNIGHT CEASEFIRE IN THE RUGGED NORTH-WEST OF THE ISLAND INTO A LASTING PEACE.

    GREEK AND TURKISH CYPRIOT COMMUNITIES ALONG OR NEAR THE RUGGED TYLLIRIAN COAST HAVE BEEN LOCKED IN BATTLE FOR ALMOST A WEEK, WITH EACH SIDE ACCUSING THE OTHER INVESTIGATING VIOLENCE AND SHOOTING.

    THE TYLLIRIAN MOUNTAINS EDGE ALONG THE NORTHERN COASTLINE OF THE ISLAND AND ARE ONE OF THE FEW REGIONS WHERE TURKISH CYPRIOTS ARE NUMERICALLY STRONGER. TURKISH STRONGPOINTS DOMINATED THE MAIN ACCESS ROADS AND ARMED TURKS HAVE PREVENTED THE GREEK VILLAGES BEING SUPPLIED BY ROAD.

    IN A BID TO END THE FIGHTING IN THE AREA, THE U.N. FORCE COMMANDERS, GENERAL CYANI, VISITED THE REGION AND IN A SERIES OF TALKS TO THE VILLAGES PLEADED WITH THEM TO END THE VIOLENCE AND RE-OPEN COMMUNICATIONS AND FREEDOM OF MOVEMENT.
