In this Thursday, Jan. 5, 2012 photo, Cyprus' President Dimitris Cristofias, second left, and Turkish Cypriot leader Dervis Eroglou, left, and their wives, Elsi Christofia, center left, and Meral Eroglou, center right, walk at the square of the United Nations officials in this mixed village of Pyla, Cyprus. Cyprus, which joined the EU in 2004, split into an internationally recognized, Greek-speaking south and a Turkish-speaking north after a 1974 invasion by Turkey, a reaction to a coup attempt by supporters of union with Greece. The result is an island that is not quite a nation, with an identity that is the sum of its shards. When George Andreou became the first Cypriot to climb Mount Everest and held up his nation's flag at the summit in May, it was a reminder of division as well as a symbol of unity.
