Cyprus Condemns Meeting with Pseudo-State Official; UK Responds

A meeting held at the House of Commons in London between the British Minister for Europe David Lidington and the so-called foreign minister of the Turkish Cypriot pseudo state, Ozdil Nami,was condemned by The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Cyprus.

The Cypriot Foreign Ministry said the meeting took place “despite the intense and repeated representations of the Republic of Cyprus at various levels, which were not heeded by London…such meetings violate UN Security Council resolutions 541 and 550, which the United Kingdom drafted and promoted.” The statement expressed “deep sadness and disappointment.”

The response of the British Foreign Office declared that the Government’s position regarding Cyprus has not changed.

“Our position has not changed: we do not recognise the so-called ‘Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus’. As such, we do not recognise the title of ‘minister’ other than for members of the Government of the Republic of Cyprus,” said a ministry spokesperson.
