UK Doesn’t Support a Divided Cyprus

The government of the United Kingdom does not support a solution that will keep Cyprus divided.  The Minister of State responsible for Europe David Lidington stressed this yesterday.  He repeated that: “The (UK) government support a just and lasting settlement on the island”.
Speaking on behalf of the British government during a debate on the Cyprus issue in the House of Commons, the British diplomat stated: “I am sure that the House will agree that the status quo is neither satisfactory nor adequate for any community in Cyprus. Reference has been made to the plight of Greek Cypriots, particularly those in displaced families, and, in fairness, to the isolation and economic underdevelopment of the Turkish Cypriot community. Only a united island within the European Union will provide the long-term peace and security that all Cypriots deserve, as well as bring economic development and prosperity to the region”.
