  • Description

    Britain appealed to the United Nations Security Council Tuesday (18 February) for the establishment of an international peace-keeping force in troubled Cyprus.

    British Ambassador Sir Patrick Dean told the Council his country has so far borne the main burden of the police duties in Cyprus. He said Britain believes the task "cannot properly be discharged without some broader sharing of the responsibility."
    Sir Patrick was the first speaker as the Council began its consideration of the Cyprus problem. Other speakers included Cypriot Foreign Minister Kyprianou who said the government of Cyprus had agreed to the principal of an international peace-keeping force but insisted that it be under the control of the U.S. Security Council.

    Turkist Ambassador Menemencioglu charged that Cyprus had asked for a meeting of the Security Council to abrogate the treaty of 1960 which established Cyprus as an independent nation.
