On behalf of my Government, I strongly protest the aforementioned continued abuses by Turkey and call for their immediate cessation. These continuing violations by Turkey of the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the Republic of Cyprus undermine the peace and security of the entire region. They are especially counterproductive in the current period of ongoing negotiations between the two communities in Cyprus , under the good offices mission of the Secretary-General, aimed at finding a just, lasting and peaceful solution to the Cyprus problem.

The Government of Turkey should heed the call of the international community, abide by the Charter of the United Nations and respect the sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity of the Republic of Cyprus . Its actions should be directed towards the creation of the necessary conditions for reaching a viable solution to the Cyprus problem, in accordance with the agreed basis for such a solution, endorsed by numerous Security Council resolutions.

I should be grateful if you would have the present letter circulated as a document of the General Assembly, under agenda item 43, and of the Security Council.
