To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what issues were discussed during the recent visit of the President of Cyprus in London.

Mrs. Chalker

My right hon. Friend the Prime Minister, my right hon. and learned Friend the Secretary of State and I discussed progress in the intercommunal talks with President Vassiliou during his working visit to Britain from 28 February to 5 March. All the main issues of the Cyprus problem were covered. We encouraged Mr. Vassiliou to continue to negotiate constructively towards a comprehensive settlement, building on the positive elements in the proposals tabled by Mr. Denktash and himself.
