ATAA Commemorates the 38th Anniversary of
Turkey's Cyprus Peace Operation
July 20, 1974 marks the day of the Turkish rescue and peace operation by the Turkish Army on Cyprus to protect the lives and liberties of the island's Turkish community from mass extermination.
ATAA commends the Turkish Armed Forces Peacekeeping Mission which in 1974 intervened on the island to stop the ethnic cleansing and genocide of the Turkish Cypriots by the Greek army and Greek Cypriot EOKA guerrillas since 1963.
ATAA supports the removal of the economic and cultural embargoes that have continued the racist policies of the Greek Cypriot government and violated the human rights of Turkish Cypriots on the island since 1974.
ATAA support the self-determination of Turkish-Cypriots, who at this time seek a bi-communal, bi-zonal federation on the island, in opposition to the Greek Cypriot government which seeks a politically, ethnically, and religiously Hellenic-dominated island.
