Motion text

That this House congratulates the Cypriot leaders, Nicos Anastasiades and Mustafa Akinci, for agreeing to meet in Geneva on 9 January 2017; recognises all the work that, with the support of the UN, the Greek and Turkish Cypriot negotiators and their teams of advisors have done since May 2015 which has contributed to the possibility of a settlement being reached; further congratulates the technical committees that have demonstrated that Cypriots can work together constructively and brought hope to the peace process; hopes that the leaders can reach the stage where maps are exchanged and the guarantor powers, Greece, Turkey and the UK, together with the EU, are brought in to discuss guarantees and security; urges the Cypriot Diaspora and civil society in Cyprus to engage positively in support; and calls on the Government, in its role as guarantor power, current EU and Commonwealth member and Permanent Member of the UN Security Council, to do all it can to support a positive outcome for Cyprus which will be in the interest of all Cypriots and other key actors in a dangerous region afflicted by uncertainty and conflict.
