Cyprus Mail 70 years: From the archives, late 60’s, early 70’s

1968: Clerides with Denktash

The late 1960s and early 1970s are the focus of this week’s Cyprus Mail 70th anniversary uploads of archive material.

After the threat of a Turkish invasion receded at the end of 1967, relations between the Turkish and Greek Cypriots improved. Many restrictions on the Turkish Cypriot enclaves were lifted in March 1968 and talks between the two sides started in in mid-1968.

Far more tense, however, were relations between President Makarios and the Greek junta, General Grivas and nationalist Greek Cypriot opposition.

New archive material is uploaded every Wednesday and Saturday.
