LONDON – Labour MP Sir Alan Meale and a joint delegation of two UK organizations, Famagusta Association and the Turkish Cypriot Association for Democracy, talked about the future of Famagusta on the morning of August 4.
It was a one hour long meeting at the House of Commons, where the Cypriots asked Sir Alan for his support of their efforts to get MPs to call for the return of Famagusta to its lawful inhabitants.
Meale expressed his continuing support for a fair settlement to the Cyprus issue and he emphasized that the UK will benefit from a resolution of the dispute.

It?s the first time in nearly 60 years that such a service during Christianity?s holiest week is being held at this 14th century church. Although the island?s conflict has never been about religion, the service is seen as an example of how faith can help mend the island?s ethnic division. (AP Photo/Philippos Christou)
