Imperialist plans in light of the geopolitical significance of Cyprus


This intervention picks up the thread where Joseph Conrad left it with Kurtz in the novel ‘Heart of Darkness’; namely, at the European imperialism in the Congo jungle. As 50 years have passed since the Turkish invasion and occupation, it is a conditio sine qua non to analyse the plans of British and US-NATO imperialism with regard to the long-lasting issue of Cyprus.

The issue of the imperialist patronage of Cyprus -and the domestic and Greek political (and non political) advocates who support it through various plans and schemes- is not a recent phenomenon. There has always been -and still is- an attempt to impose an imperialist plan on Cyprus under suffocating NATO control, aiming to lessen sovereign rights on the one hand and impose a constitutional type of partition on the other.

The intervention examines and analyses the multitude of forms, actions and

projects with the same objective: The methodical scheming for dominance of the imperialist powers, particularly the US and the UK, precisely because of the geopolitical significance of Cyprus.
