Did you know about Cyprus?

According to legend, Cyprus is the birthplace of the ancient Greek Goddess of Love, Aphrodite. Cyprus owes its name to the word for copper in ancient Greek, "Kypros". The island has rich copper deposits. This island has played an important part in the history, for it lies at the crossroads of three continents.

Facts about Cyprus

Administrative divisions: 6 districts; Famagusta , Kyrenia , Larnaca , Limassol , Nicosia , Paphos; note - Turkish Cypriot area's administrative divisions include Kyrenia , all but a small part of Famagusta , and small parts of Lefkosia (Nicosia)
Area: total: 9 ,250 sq km (of which 3 ,355 sq km are in north Cyprus) land: 9 ,240 sq km water: 10 sq km
Background: A former British colony , Cyprus became independent in 1960 following years of resistance to British rule. Tensions between the Greek Cypriot majority and Turkish Cypriot minority came to a head in December 1963 , when violence broke out in the capital of Nicosia. Despite the deployment of UN peacekeepers in 1964 , sporadic intercommunal violence continued forcing most Turkish Cypriots into enclaves throughout the island. In 1974 , a Greek Government-sponsored attempt to seize control of Cyprus was met by military intervention from Turkey , which soon controlled more than a third of the island. In 1983 , the Turkish-held area declared itself the "Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus" (TRNC) , but it is recognized only by Turkey. The latest two-year round of UN-brokered talks - between the leaders of the Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot communities to reach an agreement to reunite the divided island - ended when the Greek Cypriots rejected the UN settlement plan in an April 2004 referendum. The entire island entered the EU on 1 May 2004 , although the EU acquis - the body of common rights and obligations - applies only to the areas under direct government control , and is suspended in the areas administered by Turkish Cypriots. However , individual Turkish Cypriots able to document their eligibility for Republic of Cyprus citizenship legally enjoy the same rights accorded to other citizens of European Union states. The election of a new Cypriot president in 2008 served as the impetus for the UN to encourage both the Turkish and Cypriot Governments to reopen unification negotiations.
