Chapter Summary

This chapter gives an overview of the historical background of the Cyprus Problem and its present dimensions; touch on some other aspects of the present situation and policies; deals briefly with United Nations peace-keeping in relation to Cyprus. It has been noted from the significant speech of the Soviet leader M. Gorbachev at the United Nations, his emphasis on enhancing the role of the United Nations in general and of U.N. peace-keeping in particular; the need for co-operation among the super-powers in resolving regional conflicts; the greater reliance on international law and the augmenting of the jurisdiction of the International Court of Justice; and his declaration that "the use or threat of force no longer can or must be an instrument of foreign policy". There is much that the United States, can do through principled and enlightened diplomacy to help in the road to a peaceful and just solution.

Keywords:Cyprus; International Court of Justice; M. Gorbachev; super-powers; United Nations peace-keeping; United States
