Where is Cyprus Located on the Map

Cyprus is an island in the Mediterranean Sea. Its location is in the eastern part of the Mediterranean, making it part of the Middle East. However politically, it is a member of the EU and culture-wise is more similar to Greece than its closer Middle Eastern neighbors. The Republic of Cyprus has been an independent country since 1960. It was formerly a British territory and is still part of the commonwealth. In 1974, an invasion by the Turkish Army meant that 36% of the Island was and continues to be occupied by Turkish forces. (The story is much longer and more complicated than that one sentence).
