The General Assembly, 
Having considered the question of Cyprus,

constitutes a threat to international peace and security, 
Mindful of the need to solve this crisis without delay by peaceful means, in 
accordance with the purposes and principles of the United Nations, 
Having heard the statements in the debate and taking note of the Report of 
the Special Political Committee on the Question of Cyprus, 
1. Calls upon all states to respect the sovereignty, independence, territorial 
integrity and non-alignment of the Republic of Cyprus and to refrain from all 
acts and interventions directed against it; 
2. Urges the speedy withdrawal of all foreign armed forces and foreign military 
presence and personnel from the Republic of Cyprus and the cessation of all 
foreign interference in its affairs;

concerns the Greek-Cypriot and Turkish-Cypriot communities; 
4. Commends the contacts and negotiations taking place on an equal footing,
