Turkey is upset about the renaming of some Turkish named streets in the Greek part of the Republic of Cyprus. An article in the pro-government Turkish Hürriyet daily accuses Greeks of Cyprus of taking Turkish neighborhoods in the southern part of the island before 1974 and eliminating street names there, forgetting the Turkish occupation of almost half of Cyprus.

Outraged by the renaming of the streets, the Turkish columnist mentioned the renaming of Talaat Pasha Avenue in Paphos, Cyprus, which was renamed Justice Avenue a few weeks ago by the local Armenian community.

Let us note that in 1974 more than 200,000 Greeks moved from the Turkish part to the Greek part as a result of the division of the island by the Turkish occupation.
