On the 20th of July 1974 Turkey invaded Cyprus after an unsuccessful Greek coup to unite the island with Greece. The invasion resulted in the displacement of 200,000 Greek Cypriots from their homes and ancestral lands. Thousands of Turkish Cypriots also had to leave their properties in the south and head to northern Cyprus. 45 years later, Cyprus remains ethnically divided. It is my wish that 2020 will see it reunited and that Turkish and Greek Cypriots can begin a new chapter in their long history; one that will grant them the peace and prosperity so many long for.
