Cyprus is situated in the Eastern Mediterranean, south of Turkey and west of Syria and Lebanon.
The Republic of Cyprus, the internationally recognised government, occupies the southern two-thirds of the island (59,74%). The Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus occupies the northern third (34,85%) of the island and is recognised only by Turkey. The United Nations-controlled Green Line is a buffer zone that separates the two and covers 2,67% of the island. Lastly, two bases under British sovereignty are located on the island: Akrotiri and Dhekelia, covering the rest 2,74%.
