The urgent plea to Unficyp is for immediate intervention in the buffer zone dispute in Cyprus, following two separate incursions by Turkish troops that violated the status quo in the Ayios Dhometios buffer zone. The plea calls for action to address and reverse these violations, which have raised stability concerns in the region.
The United Nations Peacekeeping Force in Cyprus (Unficyp) has taken prompt action to address buffer zone intrusions, preventing further violations by Turkish soldiers. They have managed unauthorized installations in an unoccupied building, removed a rotating camera and antenna, and maintain dialogue with both sides to uphold the peace agreement in the tense region.
Unficyp, the United Nations Peacekeeping Force in Cyprus, is actively monitoring the situation in the buffer zone where Turkish Cypriot soldiers have gathered, potentially for construction. Their role is to ensure peace and compliance with United Nations regulations, preventing any actions that may disturb the ceasefire lines and maintaining open communication between governing bodies to uphold the status quo.
