    Addressing the House of Commons during a debate on Cyprus, Flint said this was among the views she expressed during her visit to Ankara before Christmas. I visited Ankara just before Christmas and made our views known to our Turkish colleagues about the important role that they can play in creating a positive atmosphere for those talks Flint said, adding that she was impressed by Turkish positive messages on the issue.
