Chapter Summary

In this chapter, the author details his views on the role of Small States in Cyprus. Being a very small country, unencumbered by exclusive ties to either of the two major blocs in the cold war and having no world-wide military, political, or economic interests of its own to further, Cyprus found it possible to make the United Nations (UN)and the principles of its Charter central to its foreign policy. It was envisaged that the Security Council, upon which the Members of the Organization conferred primary responsibility for the maintenance of international peace and security, would take prompt action in the removal of threats to peace. The direction in which things have been going, points steadily to accepting that in practice future peacekeeping operations, as a rule, will be authorized by the Security Council. UN peacekeeping presents an acceptable alternative and is likely to lead to a more peaceful world.
