Motion text

That this House believes that Cyprus will best succeed as an independent and reunited state, in line with UN Security Council Resolutions and High Level Agreements, on the basis of reconciliation and equality for the fundamental rights of both the Greek and Turkish Cypriot communities; calls for the two communities to reach an agreement on the reunification of Cyprus; further urges that such an agreement must respect the rule of law and fundamental rights of all Cypriots; believes that the internationally recommended model of a bi-zonal, bi-communal federation with political equality, with a federal government with single international sovereignty and citizenship, is the best way to achieve this; further believes that positive engagement between the two sides and communities should be the first step to mutually acceptable agreement on the security needs of both Cypriot communities; urges all parties to seek a just and sustainable resolution to this long-running dispute which has caused such misery over so many years; and stands ready to support the new UN Special Representative in his work should the circumstances present themselves for a new set of negotiations.
