MP BACKS CYPRUS SOLUTION

Eastbourne MP Nigel Waterson has addressed a packed meeting of the National Federation of Cypriots in the United Kingdom at the House of Commons. The meeting was to mark the 35th anniversary of the Turkish invasion and the division of the island.

Nigel said: “It is a terrible tragedy that after 35 years the island of Cyprus remains divided. Whilst it is encouraging that President Christofias and Mr. Talat have made some progress in their talks – including the agreement to reopen the Limnitis crossing point – there is still much more to do.”

“And there remains the terrible situation of the relatives of the missing persons, who still do not know the final fate or resting place of their loved ones. After all this time, what we need is a solution for Cyprus, by Cypriots and for Cypriots.”
