Turkish Cypriots
Turkish-Cypriots make up 18% of the population. Their main language is Turkish and most are Muslims.

The biggest economic activity in the north of Cyprus is farming. Popular crops are potatoes and citrus fruits.

People in the north of Cyprus are proud of their Turkish-Cypriot identity but many are also keen to be part of the European Union.

They hope that joining the EU will increase their chances of getting a good job.
