Cyprus before the UN

Greece has formally raised the Cyprus dispute at the United Nations. Four out of five of the half million inhabitants of Cyprus consider themselves Greek and most of these want the island put under Greek sovereignty, though they would not object to Britain retaining her strategic bases there by treaty with the Greek Government. The movement for Enosis, or union with Greece began a century ago, largely under the leadership of the Greek Orthodox Church in the island. The Cyprus Communist Party has joined the Church leaders in demanding Enosis.
