The Commonwealth offers support to Cyprus over Varosha

The Commonwealth member states, having been briefed by Cyprus` Foreign Affairs Minister Nikos Christodoulides, have issued a statement expressing “deep concern” over the illegal opening of the beach-front in Varosha, the fenced-off part of Turkish occupied Famagusta, last month.

The statement of the Commonwealth Foreign Affairs Meeting on Monday reads: “We reaffirm herewith the status of Varosha as set out in relevant UN Security Council Resolutions, including Resolution 550 (1984) and 789 (1992), and reiterate that no actions should be carried out in Varosha that are not in accordance with these Resolutions. In this regard, we fully support and reiterate the call made by the UN Security Council in its a Presidential Statement on 9 October 2020.
