Mr. Cox

Mr. David Davis

MEPs attending the 9th meeting of the EU/Cyprus Joint Parliamentary Committee discussed the issue of the Karpass with EU ambassadors in Nicosia 3 to 5 March. The Turkish Cypriot leadership is well aware of our views on the need to revoke the remaining restrictions on the basic freedoms in the Karpass. High commission officials regularly visit the Karpass.
