  • Recalling that the double crime of the coup d’etat and invasion was planned by the US and NATO aiming to divide Cyprus and impose union of one part to Greece and the other to Turkey, both countries been NATO members,
  • Noting that 40 years on Cyprus continues to live though the consequences of the Turkish invasion and occupation,
  • Reiterating that the Cyprus problem is in essence an international problem of invasion and illegal occupation, in violation of the fundamental principles of international law and the Charter of the UN,

  • Taking note of the directive of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Turkey for the binding of regions of the EEZ of the Republic of Cyprus to conduct research and exercises,
  • Reminding the sovereign right of the states to the peaceful development of their resources.

Declaración de solidaridad de partidos participantes en el 16o Encuentro Internacional de Partidos Comunistas y Obreros, 13-15/11/2014, Guayaquil Ecuador

Los abajo firmantes Partidos comunistas y obreros participantes en el 16o Encuentro Internacional de Partidos Comunistas y Obreros organizado en Guayaquil , Ecuador, en 13-15/11/2014:

Recordando que este año se han cumplido 40 años desde el golpe de estado organizado en Julio de 1974 por los coroneles negros de Grecia y la organización fascista EOKA B’ contra el Presidente elegido de la República de Chipre, Archobispo Makarios,

Recordando que Turquía utilizo el golpe como pretexto para ejecutar sus planes expansionistas hacia Chipre, invadiendo ilegalmente la isla donde se queda hasta hoy día en flagrante violación del derecho internacional, continuando la ocupación de 37% del territorio de República de Chipre, violando los derechos humanos y libertades fundamentales de todo el pueblo chipriota; sigue alterando el carácter demográfico de la isla con el colonialismo continuo que practica.

Recordando que este crimen gemelo del golpe de estado e de la invasión fue planificado por EE.UU y el OTAN con el objetivo de dividir la isla y unir una parte con Grecia e otra con Turquía – ambas miembros del OTAN.

Recordando que 40 años después el pueblo chipriota sigue viviendo la consecuencias de la invasión e ocupación turca.

Reiteramos que el problema Chipriota es en su esencia un problema internacional de invasión e ocupación ilegal, en violación de los principios fundamentales del derecho internacional y de la Carta de Naciones Unidas.

Anotando que el problema chipriota sigue manteniendo también su aspecto interno, del restablecimiento de las relaciones entre las dos comunidades en Chipre, griego-chipriota e turco-chipriota.

Tomando en cuenta la directiva del Ministerio de Asuntos Exteriores de Turquía “designando” regiones de la Zona Económica Exclusiva de la República de Chipre para conducir investigaciones y maniobras,

Recordando el derecho soberano de los estados al desarrollo pacifico de sus recursos,

Considerando que el derecho de la República de Chipre a prospecciones y explotación de hidrocarburos en su Zona Económica Exclusiva es inalienable, como para todo otro estado,

Los Partidos Comunistas e Obreros firmantes de la presente declaración:

  1. Teniendo estos elementos en cuenta condenamos la política intransigente de Turquía y de la direccion turco-chipriota que perpetua el problema chipriota y consolida los hechos divisionistas en el terreno.
  2. Declaramos que la tolerancia mostrada por la comunidad internacional a la continua ilegalidad que sigue en Chipre hace 40 años es inaceptable y debe terminar inmediatamente.
  3. Demandamos la solución del problema chipriota lo mas pronto posible en la base del derecho internacional y las resoluciones de la ONU. La solución debe restablecer los derechos humanos y libertades en el marco de una federación bizonal y bicomunal, con igualdad política como definido en las resoluciones de la ONU.

4. Demandamos paz permanente que permitiera la reunificación, independencia y libertad del pueblo chipriota en su totalidad.

5. Llamamos a la verificación de lo que a pasado con los mas de 1500 desaparecidos de la tragedia chipriota.

6. Denunciamos la “designación” ilegal de parte de la Zona Económica Exclusiva de la República de Chipre de parte de Turquía como una acción inaceptable que viola el Tratado de Naciones Unidos por la Ley del Mar y de la Ley Internacional Consuetudinario.

7. Subraya que la acción unilateral del gobierno Turco aumenta las tensiones en la región y afecta negativamente las negociaciones bicomunales por la solución del problema Chipriota.

8. Llamamos a la comunidad internacional de demandar la revocación la noticia ilegal y denunciamos todo acto de acoso de los derechos soberanos de la República de Chipre en su Zona Económica Exclusiva.

9. Expresamos nuestra solidaridad y apoyo con la justa lucha del pueblo chipriota por la liberación y reunificación de su pueblo.
