Northern Cyprus is the part of the island of Cyprus that has been occupied by Turkey since its invasion of Cyprus in 1974. As far as I can tell, the Republic of Northern Cyprus is only recognized by Turkey.
What is the EU’s position on this? Why does it not do something about the seemingly illegal occupation of one of its member states? Is it because the accession of Cyprus to the EU happened in 2004, after the invasion took place? As the EU recognizes the North as part of the country of Cyprus, does it try to enforce EU legislation within the territory, for example?
