Introduced in House (12/14/2005)

Calls upon the U.S. government to advocate for the immediate withdrawal of Turkish troops from the occupied territories of the Republic of Cyprus.

Supports of the European Commission's 2005 Progress Report on Turkey, which states that Turkey: (1) continues to wrongfully impose its veto on Cyprus' membership in certain international organizations; (2) insists in excluding Cyprus and Malta from the strategic cooperation between the European Union (EU) and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) in crisis management; and (3) restricts Cyprus-flagged vessels from entering Turkish ports and Cypriot civilian aircraft from using Turkish national airspace.

Calls upon Turkey to normalize relations with the Republic of Cyprus and stop hampering strategic cooperation between the EU and NATO.
