Court orders Turkey to pay 90 mln euros over 1974 Cyprus invasion

The European Court of Human Rights on Monday ordered Turkey to pay Cyprus 90 million euros in damages over its 1974 invasion of the northern part of the island and its subsequent division, though the Turkish foreign minister said the decision is not binding.

This is among the highest amounts ever awarded by the court, which said that Turkey needs to pay 30 million euros in damages to the families of those who went missing during the invasion, as well as an additional 60 million euros to the enclaved Greek-Cypriot residents of the Karpas Peninsula.

Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu responded to the decision by saying that as Turkey is not a European Union member, the court has no jurisdiction over it, according to Turkish media.

In a separate development, the Cypriot government spokesman on Monday confirmed that US Vice President Joe Biden is expected to visit the island on May 21-23.
