» Overview of UN Resolutions On Cyprus 1960-present

When in 1964 Turkey first threatened to invade Cyprus, the government of the young Republic brought the matter before the UN Security Council which adopted, unanimously, resolutions reflecting the collective will and decisions of the international community. As such, they provide the appropriate framework and the basis for a comprehensive settlement to the Question of Cyprus, in conformity with international law and the UN Charter.
