    Cyprus, officially called the Republic of Cyprus, is an island country in the Eastern Mediterranean.

    The Republic of Cyprus is de facto partitioned into two main parts: the area under the effective control of the Republic, located in the south and west and comprising about 59% of the island’s area, and the north, administered by the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, covering about 36% of the island’s area. Another nearly 4% of the island’s area is covered by a UN buffer zone.

    The Sovereign Base Areas of Akrotiri and Dhekelia, remain under the UK’s control according to the London and Zürich Agreements.

    The Republic of Cyprus has been a member of the Commonwealth since 1961 and joined the European Union on 1 May 2004.
