Conflict Issues Had almost consistent control of Cyprus from 9000 BC until Ottoman invasion Ottoman rule over Cyprus during WWI until British control. Greco-Turkish War 1919. Recognized Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus 1998 International Involvement The international community, in the form of the United Nations, the European Union, and the United States, have tried to force the leaders of the conflicting Cypriot parties to come to the negotiation table to create a peaceful solution. Thus far, efforts have not succeeded. Global Level Regional Level State Level At the state level, the conflict is regarding the recognition of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, or how Cyprus can reunify with fair representation of both ethnic groups. At the regional level, it is difficult to interact with Cyprus. The island has caused tension to increase between Greece and Turkey, and by extension, the European Union and NATO. The discovery of oil off the northern Cypriot coast has drawn international attention as the dispute over who owns the oil grows. The dispute over Cyprus makes cooperation between the European Union and NATO virtually impossible.
