Turk­ish Cypri­ots mark troop land­ing with mu­seum

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Au­thor­i­ties in Turk­ish-oc­cu­pied north­ern Cyprus are re­port­edly plan­ing to cre­ate an ope­nair mu­seum at Pen­temili beach, west of Kyre­nia, to mark the spot where Turk­ish troops landed when they in­vaded and eth­ni­cally di­vided the is­land on July 20, 1974. Ac­cord­ing to Turk­ishCypriot me­dia, the ini­tia­tive was an­nounced by Huseyin Ozgur­gun, the so-called prime min­is­ter of the break­away state rec­og­nized only by Ankara. He said the plans for the mu­seum are ready and work is about to pro­ceed. High-level talks be­tween Greek and Turk­ish Cypri­ots to re­unify the is­land col­lapsed last month in Cran­sMon­tana, Switzer­land.
