    Ten British MPs, both from the Labour and the Conservative parties, have expressed cautious optimism about the latest effort for a solution of the Cyprus problem and stressed that Turkeys negative on the issue is a big obstacle, which has to be overcome. The members of the House of Commons were speaking at an event, organised by the National Federation of Cypriots in the United Kingdom, on New hope for unity in Cyprus.

    Rudi Vis, Tom Cox, David Leppar, Andrew Dismore, and Állan Meale, members of the Labour Party and Nigel Wáterson, David Barrowes, David Amess, and Robert Spink, members of the Conservative Party, expressed their support for a solution from the Cypriots for the Cypriots. In addition, they called on the British government to meet its obligations as a guarantor power of Cyprus independence, a permanent member of the UN Security Council, an EU member state and a member of the Commonwealth.

    The Special Representative of Britain for Cyprus, Joan Ryan, said that the work the leaders of the Greek Cypriot and the Turkish Cypriot communities have to do is difficult, but not impossible. Ryan welcomed the progress achieved so far by Cyprus President Demetris Christofias and Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat during the three meetings they have had so far. However, she pointed out that the most difficult issues are still to come, and expressed hope that at their next meeting, on July 25, they will announce the start of direct talks.

    Our role is to support and encourage the efforts, and we will do anything to help the procedure to continue. We do not have any plan to suggest for the solution, this is a matter of Cypriots for the Cypriots, Ryan said.
