    Morphou people appeal to Europe, UN for help

    Nicosia, Aug 16 (CNA) -- Eight refugee organisations, led by Morphou municipality, have called on Europe and the five permanent members of the UN Security Council to act more decisively in the direction of Turkey so that it works towards a just solution in Cyprus.

    "The present situation is totally unacceptable, it is a disgrace to humanity," a resolution said, which asked for support in the quest for "peace, justice and the unification of Cyprus."

    The resolution, handed to the embassies of these countries, said the people of Morphou believe that "Europe and the governments of the US, Russia, China, France and Britain, as permanent members of the Security Council, can exert more pressure upon Turkey to change attitude and work towards a just solution to the Cyprus problem."

    Restoration of the fundamental human rights for all Cypriots, respect for international law and order, the ascertainment of the fate of missing persons and the withdrawal of Turkish troops must be part of a just and viable settlement, the resolution stressed.
