HL Deb 29 March 1982 vol 428 c1266WA
Baroness Jeger

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What progress is being made towards a settlement in Cyprus; and what developments have taken place regarding the tracing of missing persons in accordance with the resolution of 4th December 1981 of the 3rd Committee of the United Nations General Assembly.

The Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs (Lord Carrington)

The parties are now engaged in detailed discussion in the intercommunal talks, making use of the United Nations Secretary-General's evaluation tabled last November. Mr. Perez de Cuellar is to have meetings with President Kyprianou and Mr. Denktash next month. Procedural difficulties continue to prevent the Intercommunal Committee on Missing Persons from beginning investigations. We are giving full support to United Nations efforts to achieve progress on all aspects of the Cyprus problem.
