De Facto Partition

(p.137) Epilogue
The Turkish Arms Embargo

James F. Goode

University Press of Kentucky

Conditions on Cyprus have evolved in predictable ways. The two communities have moved further apart; the Republic of Cyprus has become economically successful, and the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus remains something of a backwater. Attempts to resolve differences have failed. The discovery of nearby oil and gas reserves has only exacerbated these differences. US administrations have maintained a low-profile approach to the dispute, urging the United Nations to take the lead. The Reagan administration came to rely on Turkey as a point of stability in the region, and US assistance increased accordingly.

Keywords:   partition, United Nations, Turkey, Cyprus, Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, Ronald Reagan, Greek Americans, Congress, Greece, ethnic lobbies
