United Nations

Cyprus, a member of the United Nations since the 20th of September 1960, firmly believes in the primacy of the United Nations and its Charter and the importance of the implementation of UN resolutions.


The United Nations Peace-keeping Force in Cyprus (UNFICYP) was established with the consent of the Government of the Republic of Cyprus since 27 March 1964. The creation of the Force was mandated by the Security Council of the United Nations in its resolution adopted on 4 March 1964 [186, (1964)] following the outbreak of the inter-communal conflict on the island and the threat of an imminent invasion by Turkey.
