Chapter Summary

The Cyprus problem was formally placed before the United Nations, for the first time since the pre-independence events, on 26 December 1963 through a letter to the Security Council. In the General Assembly, the Question of Cyprus though not placed as such on the agenda, was raised and briefly discussed both in the course of the General Debate on the overall international situation which takes place every year, and in the context of specific items before the Main Committees of the General Assembly but was not actively pursued. During this formative period, Cyprus made the United Nations and the principles of the Charter central to its foreign policy and this had a significant and direct effect upon subsequent developments. The United Nations is still the conscience of mankind and an important forum in which the case is heard and through which international public opinion can be mobilized further.
