  • [01] IPU CYPRUS PROBLEM

    The Monitoring Committee of the Interparliamentary Union, currently holding its 124th session in Panama, has met, with the participation of a delegation from the Cyprus House of Representatives and representatives of Turkish Cypriot political parties.

    An official statement, said that during the meeting, Cypriot parliamentarians referred to the ongoing direct talks to solve the Cyprus problem between the leaders of the two communities in Cyprus and stressed the need for a viable, functional, just and mutually acceptable solution to the Cyprus question, according to international law and relevant UN resolutions.

    Members of the Cypriot delegation stressed the dedication of the Greek Cypriot side to a bizonal, bicommunal federation, with a single sovereignty, single citizenship and international personality, on the basis of political equality, as defined by UN resolutions, which secure human rights and are in line with EU principles.

    They further pointed out that the key to the solution in Cyprus lies with Turkey, which is solely responsible for the situation on the island. Regarding the so-called isolation of the Turkish Cypriot community, members of the Cypriot parliamentary delegation said this is the result of the continuing occupation.
