Glossary entry:Cyprus
Meaning in EUGRIS: Cyprus is an independent sovereign republic with a presidential system of government. Cyprus gained its independence in 1960 from Britain. Due to a disaggregation of two ethnic communities inhabiting the island, it is separated into a Greek Cypriot area in the south and a Turkish Cypriot area in the north (Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus). Cyprus covers an area of 9,250 square kilometres (36% in the Turkish Cypriot area) and has a population of 0,78 million. The capital is Nicosia (Lefkosia). Since May 2004 the Greek Cypriot area is a member of the European Union.
