Republic of Indonesia
Tensions are, sadly, rising in many areas across the globe. We in these halls are tasked with encouraging peaceful development, negotiation, and governance. This involves not only dealing with existing crises, but also those that appear to be becoming entrenched. The Republic of Indonesia has watched with great concern as the island Republic of Cyprus suffers a political crisis in a background of rising tension across the Aegean.
We therefore bring the following resolution to the UNGA, in the hope of firstly encouraging the Cypriots to reach agreement of their own accord, and second to draw the attention of the UNSC to the situation..
The Republic of Indonesia votes yes.The United Nations General Assembly,
Noting the disintegration of common government in the Republic of Cyprus between Turkish and Greek Cypriots, with the minority Turkish Cypriots proclaiming their own provisional administration on 28 December 1967, unrecognised and without international support or backing, due to a lack of intercommunal trust;
Concerned at the intercommunal violence, and rising belligerence among some in both Ankara and Athens in response, as well as on the island of Cyprus;
Desiring a peaceful resolution and negotiated solution to the Cypriot disputes;
The UNGA therefore:
Calls on the UNSC to immediately support de-escalation between Greek and Turkish military-political forces, directly and by proxy;
Supports the sending of a UN taskforce sponsoring talks with President Makarios and Vice-President Kucuk;
Affirms support for the Republic of Cyprus to peacefully solve the disputes aforementioned, and for all sides to avoid threat or use of force;
