The Nicosia Consular District comprises the Republic of Cyprus. This includes areas controlled by the Government of the Republic of Cyprus and areas administered by Turkish Cypriots. As a result of the events on Cyprus in the summer of 1974, the northern third of the island, which includes the cities of Kyrenia and Famagusta, presently is under Turkish Cypriot administration; the southern two-thirds remains under the control of the Republic of Cyprus. The political situation remains unsettled. Legal matters involving Greek Cypriots and/or the government-controlled areas of Cyprus generally should be referred to lawyers from the Greek Cypriot community while those involving Turkish Cypriots and/or areas administered by Turkish Cypriots should be referred to lawyers from the Turkish Cypriot community.
