§ Baroness Jeger
asked Her Majesty's Government:
What progress has been made towards a settlement of the Cyprus problem; and what are the present obstacles to a finalisation of existing difficulties.
§ Baroness Chalker of Wallasey
UN-led face to face talks took place between the two community leaders, between 18–31 October in the context of UN Security Council Resolution 939. Concrete progress has not so far been possible, but we believe it important to take every opportunity to pursue further negotiations and to move towards a settlement beneficial to both sides.
