HC Deb 27 October 1998 vol 318 cc147-8W
Mr. Bob Russell

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what action is being taken by the UK to press the Turkish authorities to implement the UN and Security Council resolutions relating to Cyprus and the restoration of human rights. [56777]

Ms Quin

We are committed to using the UK's unique position—as a Guarantor Power, a Permanent Member of the United Nations Security Council and as a member of the European Union—in strong support of the UN Secretary-General's efforts to achieve a comprehensive political settlement in Cyprus in line with UN Security Council resolutions.

We therefore warmly welcome the UN Secretary-General's recent announcement of a UN process of contact between the parties aimed at reducing tensions

Mr. Tony Lloyd
