§ 100. Mr. K. Robinson
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs when he expects the conciliation discussions in the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation on the international aspects of the Cyprus problem to begin; and what will be the terms of reference.
§ Mr. Selwyn Lloyd
As my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for the Colonies made clear in his statement on 20th March, Her Majesty's Government have accepted in principle the offer by the Secretary-General of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation of his good offices in conciliation. The Turkish Government have also accepted in principle. The Greek Government's response has hitherto been negative. When all three parties have accepted in principle, it may be expected that the Secretary-General of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation will seek their views on procedure. The second part of the Question does not therefore arise at present.
