§ Mr. Garel-Jones
My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs has had no discussions with Mr. Denktash. Varosha will be a key element in any settlement of the intercommunal dispute in Cyprus. All parties to the dispute are well aware of our strong view that there should be no change in the status of Varosha, nor any settlement of the area in contravention of UN Security Council resolution 550 of 11 May 1984.
