  • 1963-1974: UNFICYP did NOT succeed to protect Turkish Cypriots in a very small island in 11 years. GREEK CYPRUS destroyed all of the 103 TURKISH CYPRUS villages from 1963 to 1974 in South Cyprus. Greekofication of South Cyprus was completed.

  • 1974: Greeks tried to annex the Cyprus island to Greece.
  • 1974: Turkey gave lesson to all who needed.

  • Maraş is in TURKISH CYPRUS, and will be populated by Turkish Cypriots in 2010. Turkofication of North Cyprus will be completed soon as well.

  • Czekoslovakia = Czek + Slovakia
