Cyprus protests Turkish illegal plans at the UN

Cyprus President Nicos Anastasiades will hold meetings with senior European Union officials in the coming days to protest against Turkey's illegal plans in its occupied city of Famagusta.

Cypriot government spokesman Kyriakos Koshos said: Cyprus President Nicos Anastasiades will hold bilateral meetings with senior European Union officials in the coming days as he is expected to raise the issue of the walled part of Famagusta occupied by Turkey.

According to the Greek agency "Greek Reputer" President Anastasiades intends to inform the European High Command of Turkey's latest provocative and illegal intentions to effectively take over the Varosha region in Famagusta, which had been an uninhabited city since the Turkish invasion in 1974.

The agency noted that the Turkish Bar Association organized a round table held last Saturday in Varosha for the first time since 1974, and the meeting was attended by Turkish Vice President Fuad Aktai and Turkish Minister of Justice Abdul Hamid Gul.

In October 2019, the United Nations Security Council warned against any action that would change the status quo of this populated area.
