UK Government Disappointed About Crans Montana Results

UK Government Disappointed About Crans Montana Results

The Foreign Office has conveyed the UK Government’s “disappointment” at the failure to reach a settlement at the recent Conference on Cyprus in a letter addressed to members of the UK Cypriot community. At the same time it has called for parties to consider the way forward.

In response to a letter sent to Prime Minister May by the said group of UK Cypriots on 15 September, the Foreign Office says: “It is disappointing that the Conference on Cyprus in Crans Montana ended without agreement. The purpose of reconvening the Conference was to close the remaining gaps between the parties with a view to reaching a deal.

“The Foreign Secretary and Minister for Europe had productive discussions with all parties at the Conference to help resolve the remaining issues. All parties engaged with serious intent to reach a deal. In the end this did not prove possible, which led the UN Secretary-General to close the Conference. We are encouraging all parties to reflect on the outcome and consider next steps, the Cyprus News Agency reports.

“The UK continues to work for a just and lasting settlement in Cyprus that will benefit all Cypriots. There has been a long-standing consensus on the island that this should be in the form of a bi-zonal, bi-communal federation with political equality as set out in relevant Security Council resolutions and we continue to support this objective.

“Ultimately, the detail of a Cyprus settlement is a matter for the two leaders and the communities they represent.”
In their original letter to the Prime Minister the signatories Doros Partasides, Antonis Savvides, Andreas Tambourides, Tasos Poyatzis, Seraphim Diakou, Yiannis Kouvaros, Maria Zavrou, Leonides Leonidou and Stella Dinenis were urging the British Government to increase its efforts and use its influence so that a workable and peaceful settlement could be reached without guarantors and without foreign troops.

“The main reason (for the failure of the Conference on Cyprus to reach an agreement) was the Turkish government’s unacceptable demands on crucial matters such as the Turkish army remaining in Cyprus, Turkey retaining its guarantor power and having the right of the security of Cyprus, an independent country and full member of the UN, the European Union and the Commonwealth!” read the letter.
