    British MPs hold meetings on Cyprus

    Nicosia, Aug 27 (CNA) -- British Members of Parliament visiting Cyprus met here Tuesday with House President Demetris Christofias and the chairman of the House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee Nicos Anastasiades where they expressed their support to efforts to solve the Cyprus problem.

    MPs Bill Etherington, Rudi Vis, Nick Hawkins and Syd Rapson are in Cyprus attending the 19th conference of the World Federation of Overseas Cypriots (POMAK), the International Coordinating Committee Justice for Cyprus (PSEKA) and the First International Conference of Cyprus Youth Overseas.

    During their meeting with Christofias, the MPs were informed on the latest developments on the Cyprus problem and the course of the UN-led direct talks between President Glafcos Clerides and Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash.

    Christofias referred to the obstacles in promoting a just and viable solution to the Cyprus problem due to Denktash's insistence on the creation of two separate sovereign "states" on the island, contrary to UN resolutions calling for a bizonal, bicommunal federation.

    The House President said a Cyprus settlement should be based on the relevant UN resolutions and underlined that sovereignty cannot constitute an issue for compromise on the Greek Cypriot part, and called on the British MPs to use their influence with the British government to support a solution within this framework.
