[02] Britain whole-heartedly backs UN effort on Cyprus

The British Prime Minister Tony Blair reiterated his country's complete and whole-hearted support to UN efforts on Cyprus.

Mr. Blair also noted in his letter that "we shall be giving firm support to the efforts of the UN Secretary-General to work intensively with the two sides for compliance with United Nations Security Council Resolution 1218".

"We will also be active in encouraging both sides to co-operate in a constructive and flexible manner. In this way I hope we can secure real progress towards a just and lasting settlement in Cyprus", he concluded.
