Cyprus Foreign Minster discusses resumption of talks, security and four freedoms with Europe Minister Sir Alan Duncan

The Cyprus issue was the focus of the meeting between Cyprus Foreign Minister Ioannis Kasoulides and the UK Minister for Europe Sir Alan Duncan, at the Foreign Office, on Thursday.

The two Ministers discussed the prospect of stalled talks between the leaders of the Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot communities in Cyprus resuming; the importance that Greek Cypriots attribute to reaching a satisfactory settlement on security for a future reunified Cyprus; and the recent demand by Turkey for the four fundamental EU freedoms to be enjoyed by its nationals in Cyprus.
