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.|
