From 1489 to 1571 the island belonged to the Republic of Venice, from 1571 to 1914 to the Ottoman Empire (since 1878 leased by Britain); independent since 1960. Following a coup d'etat and atrocities against the island's Turkish minority, Turkish troops invaded the island and created the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus. In the remainder of Cyprus, the coupists were removed, and the governments of Cyprus, distancing itself the option of ENOSIS and rejecting to recognize the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, maintains the view of the island being one single political entity.
