Finally, in front of the Green Line itself lies a wide zone (1-3 kdometres) under Turkish d t a r y control and forbidden to everybody. This d t a r y presence is in itself a serniology, and claims that everybody is under the control of the Turkish army. In any event, the Turhsh Cypriot police is dtrectly under the authority of the Turkish army.

O n the Turhsh side, this situation results from a nationalist dogma. *5According to the dogma, the Turhsh nation has no boundaries and exists in every place where Turks are living; from this viewpoint, a Turhsh Cypriot is a citizen of the TRNC, but he must consider himself as a Turk and not as a Cypriot.
