UK Minister reaffirms “strong support” for Cyprus settlement

UK Minister for the European Neighbourhood has reaffirmed the British government’s “strong support” for “a comprehensive, just and lasting settlement of the Cyprus issue.”

In a letter to Christos Karaolis, President of the National Federation of Cypriots in the UK, Minister Wendy Morton notes that such a settlement would be based “on the internationally accepted model of a bi- zonal, bi-communal federation” and assures that London encourages all sides “to engage constructively and demonstrate they are committed to making progress towards a settlement.”

Morton’s letter comes as a response to a letter by Karaolis addressed to Boris Johnson to mark the 46th tragic anniversary of the Turkish invasion of Cyprus.
