  • Description

    THE BEGINNING OF A DEBATE ON CYPRUS AT THE SECURITY COUNCIL IN NEW YORK WAS DELAYED WHILE DELEGATES WRANGLED OVER WHICH OF THE THREE MAIN PARTIES CONCERNED -- TURKEY, GREECE OR CYPRUS -- SHOULD SPEAK FIRST. TURKEY HAD REQUESTED THE MEETING BE HELD, ACCUSING GREEK CYPRIOTS OF TRYING TO "SUBDUE BY FORCE OF ARMS THE TURKISH COMMUNITY IN CYPRUS IN ORDER TO PERPETUATE THE USURPATION OF GOVERNMENT BY THE GREEK COMMUNITY." DURING THE INITIAL WRANGLING, A SUGGESTION THAT CYPRUS DELEGATE, MR. ZENON ROSSIDES, CALLED THE ATTENTION OF THE COUNCIL ON A POINT OF ORDER:
    SPEAKING FOR TURKEY, MR. ORHAN ERALP CAST DOUBT ON THE TRUTH OF MR. ROSSIDES' THREATENED INVASION REMARK BEFORE GOING ON TO DEFEND HIS COUNTRY'S ACTION IN ATTACKING GREEK CYPRIOT POSITIONS IN THE NORTH-WEST OF THE ISLAND.

    THE EMERGENCY SESSION OF THE UNITED NATIONS SECURITY COUNCIL MET AGAIN TODAY (SUNDAY) WITH SOME HOPE OF AVERTING A MAJOR CRISIS IN THE EASTERN MEDITERRANEAN. THE PRESIDENT OF THE COUNCIL APPEALED TO TURKEY TO CEASE THE BOMBING OF CYPRUS AND THE USE OF MILITARY FORCE AGAINST THE ISLAND AND TO THE CYPRUS GOVERNMENT TO ORDER ITS FORCES TO CEASE FIRE IMMEDIATELY. PRESIDENT MAKARIOS HAS OFFERED A CEASE-FIRE AND AT THE SECURITY COUNCIL THE TURKISH DELEGATION HAS WELCOMED THE PRESIDENT'S SUGGESTION.
