    House Committee on Refugees, Enclaved and Missing Persons in Cyprus extensively briefed Members of the Civil Liberties Committee of the European Parliament on issues of missing persons in Cyprus.

    The Cypriot Parliamentarians briefed the MEPs on the current situation as regards the process of identification of the fate of the missing persons, as well as the difficulties that Turkey imposes on that process due to Ankara's intransigent stance.

    The Cypriot MPs asked their European counterparts to exert pressure on Turkey to alter its stance and open the archives of its army, to determine the fate of the missing persons, and generally to change its intransigence and cooperate for a comprehensive solution to the Cyprus problem.

    Chairwoman of the Committee, Skevi Koukouma, noted that the Committee views the political aspect of the issue of missing persons in Cyprus as a very serious one.
