Ad Hoc Committee of the Secretary General on Cyprus Dispute

The The Ad Hoc Committee of the Secretary-General Based On Cyprus Dispute was created in order to facilitate the implementation of all the relevant resolutions of the General Assembly on Cyprus, all of which intend mainly to bring the dispute to rest with the democratic rights of each side being satisfied. The Committee further aims to maintain successful negotiations between the two communities, while keeping the contact with the Secretary-General Kofi Annan regarding the process. Hence, the Committee is expected to construct a plan which functions as a mediator among the authorities claiming rights in the territory without neglecting the human rights related principles of the United Nations. The Agenda Item The Cyprus Dispute, also referred as the Cyprus Issue, is the ongoing military annexation and the advancing Turkish occupation of the northern side of Cyprus, since 1974. The island of Cyprus was last inherited by the British Empire to form the Ottoman Empire in the early 20th century. Even though the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus is not possessed with a full recognition by the United Nations, it is patrolled and under the administration of the Turkish Armed Forces, also with TRNC enjoying full diplomatic relations with other states in violation of Resolution 550, adopted on May 1984, one year after the invasion, by the Security Council of the UN. Mentioning this, the state of both the southern part and northern part are recognised as one whole state, being referred as the Republic of Cyprus, which is currently being directed by the Greek Cypriots. Following the stance of the Turkish Republic interruption into the Cyprus borders, a Buffer zone, known as the Green Line, was established by the United Nations to avoid any inter-communal tensions and disturbances, situated around where the two borders clash. As a final advance the United Nations had proposed a campaign to resolve the situation in an eligible and appropriate way offering the two nations an equal share priority, however excluding some parts which were spread out equally, according to the population figures. The aim was to reconstruct an only state run by both nations but was put out after a referendum put forward to the Turkish and Greek Cypriots, with the figures of 65% of Turkish Cypriots and just 24% of Greek Cypriots voting in favour of the election
