§ Mr. Eastham
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what role he anticipates playing in finding a solution to the problem in Cyprus.
§ Mr. Whitney
We continue to want a peaceful, just and lasting settlement to the Cyprus problem. We believe that the United Nations Secretary-General, whose mandate to pursue his mission of good offices was recently reaffirmed by the United Nations Security Council, is best placed to help make progress towards that end. We stand ready to do all we can to help him.
