HC Deb 13 January 1998 vol 304 c188W
26. Mr. Simon Hughes

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what initiatives over Cyprus he proposes for 1998. [20438]

Mr. Robin Cook

We will continue to use our influence to help ensure that the two communities resume the settlement negotiations under the aegis of the UN Secretary-General. As EU Presidency, we will open accession negotiations with Cyprus. We hope this will involve a joint Greek Cypriot/Turkish Cypriot delegation.
