Mr. Mayor,

 

On behalf of the Community of Ayios Amvrosios (Saint Ambrose) - Kyrenia, we wish to express our strong protest and disappointment with your decision, as it was written in the local press in Cyprus on the 6th November 2013, to "twin" with the illegal "municipality" established in our occupied township by the Turkish occupation regime with its name illegally altered to "Esentepe". We strongly oppose this action which violates international law. The only legal local authority which may represent our town is the Community Council of Ayios Amvrosios (Saint Ambrose) and no other person.  Our community is located in the Kyrenia district of Cyprus and constitutes the easternmost part of the district being the head township among the other villages (Kalogrea, Chartzia and Klepini) in the area. 

 

The illegal Turkish invasion of 1974 caused the forced expulsion and displacement of nearly 200,000 Greek Cypriots, including the inhabitants of the above mentioned communities which had only Greek Cypriot residents. The Turkish occupation regime has not yet complied with UN Security Council Resolution 361 (1974) which urges that refugees "who wish to do so to return to their homes in safety", nor the unanimous UN General Assembly Resolution 3212 (ΧΧΙΧ, 1974) which also considers that "all the refugees should return to their homes in safety".  The illegal "municipality" with which you have chosen to "twin" is comprised of usurpers of our properties and is directly associated with the illegal secessionist entity in the occupied areas of Cyprus which has also been condemned by the UN Security Council in its Resolution 541 (1983) and Resolution 550 (1984). 

 

We consider that your action is both illegal and inconsistent with the values and principles of the European Union to which your country is a member together with the Republic of Cyprus. As our allies and associates we would expect your support on this matter and to help our community and our country to remedy this injustice to our people and not to "twin" with illegal colonist who violate our towns and forced our people to live as refugees for the last 40years under the support of the mighty Turkish Military machine.

 

We are certain that we will have your full understanding on the importance of the issues we have raised both as regards international law, but also from a moral and an ethical perspective. In essence, your decision to "twin" constitutes tacit approval of the illegal Turkish occupation since 1974 which prohibits and prevents us from exercising our fundamental human right of return to our ancestral homes. Consequently, on behalf of the community of Ayios Amvrosios (Saint Ambrose) and the neighboring towns we urge you to revoke your decision to "twin" with the illegal "municipality" established in occupied Ayios Amvrosios (Saint Ambrose). Such action would, on your part, show your respect for international law and for the human rights of the displaced people of Ayios Amvrosios (Saint Ambrose) and the Kyrenia district in general. Furthermore it would show your respect to your own ancestors who suffered greatly, as we do now, under the illegal occupation of the Nazi forces during the "Second World War".   

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Savvas Xiouris - Chairman

Community Council  Ayios Amvrosios  Kyrenia
