Documentary | The Cyprus Problem, Still Divided 1974

Featured by UrbanTV Cyprus Facebook: /> Documentary info - "Cyprus Still Divided" finally reveals the web of domestic politics, the realpolitik of Henry Kissinger, and repeated refusal of successive U.S. presidents to demand that the rule of law and fundamental human rights be upheld in Cyprus. For example, the documentary presents a recently declassified 1974 State Department memorandum that clearly indicts Secretary of State Kissinger, who wrote, "There is no American reason why the Turks should not have one-third of Cyprus." "Newly-released information about U.S. policy toward Cyprus, such as the declassified State Department memorandum written by Secretary Kissinger, sheds new light on the 36-year-old issue and the public must be made aware," said Executive Director Nick Larigakis. "The documentary accomplishes this task by presenting the facts in a clear and concise manner." "Cyprus Still Divided" also looks to the future of the divided island in the context of the ongoing settlement negotiations between the Republic of Cyprus and the Turkish Cypriot community that began in September 2008. The documentary says: "By abandoning the rule of law and its principles, the United States had a role in causing the present division of Cyprus. It remains to be seen whether the U.S. can perform a role in reunifying Cyprus." - AHI
