EU calls for halt to sales of Greek Cypriot property in the north

In Resolution 1628, the Parliamentary Assembly Council of Europe (PACE) has called on the authorities of the Turkish Cypriot community to “put an end to the sales of, and construction on, Greek Cypriot properties in the northern part of Cyprus“.

PACE also called on the Turkish Cypriot community to:

  • confirm their commitment to reunifying Cyprus, and to refrain from insisting on the existence of a ‘separate state’ in the north of the island“;
  • consider specific aid to help the Turkish settlers to leave“;
  • respect point 5 of United Nations Resolution 550 by placing the city of Famagusta under UN administration“.

After months of debating the issues surrounding the island’s division, PACE said that “It reaffirms its strong commitment to reaching a fair, lasting and comprehensive solution for a peaceful and united Cyprus which would guarantee the legitimate rights of both Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots, in full compliance with the values and principles of the Council of Europe“.
