Britain and the Rebellious Greeks of Cyprus

September 1955
New Republic;9/12/55, Vol. 133 Issue 11, p9
The article presents information on the conflict between Greek Cypriot and Great Britain. Cyprus demands for "self-determination," from Great Britain, which has ruled her for over 77 years. The Turks are steamed up about Cyprus for reasons of their own. They are concerned about the fate of their Turkish minority on the island and about their own security. But even if the British, Greek and Turkish delegations manage to reach some compromise solution on Cyprus they will be faced with the difficult task of persuading the Greek Cypriot leaders to accept their solution.
