    In the concluding remarks of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM), which took place in Trinidad and Tobago, they also expressed their support for a lasting, just and functional settlement based on the principles of the United Nations Charter, the relevant UN Security Council resolutions and the principles of the Commonwealth.

    They reiterated their support for the respect for the human rights of all Cypriots, including the right to property, for the implementation on the relevant decisions of the European Court of Human Rights and of the European Court of Justice, and for the accounting for all missing persons.

    Heads of Government further agreed on the importance of supporting the efforts of the two leaders under the UN Secretary General`s Good Offices Mission to bring about a comprehensive settlement of the Cyprus problem in line with the relevant UN Security Council Resolutions.

    They welcomed the ongoing Cypriot-owned process of the fully fledged negotiations initiated in September 2008, aimed at reaching an agreed solution on the basis of a bizonal, bicommunal federation with a single sovereignty, single international personality, single citizenship and political equality as described in the relevant UN Security Council Resolutions.
