Location of Northern Cyprus

The Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus is a de facto state that comprises the northeastern portion of the island of Cyprus.

Northern Cyprus became autonomous in 1974 with the support of Turkey, and in 1983 declared independence, but has not gained international recognition. Northern Cyprus is considered by the international community to be part of the Republic of Cyprus. Presumably for Wikimedia Commons purposes the copyright laws of Cyprus may be considered to apply.
