UK Foreign Secretary Dominique Raab expressed frustration at not finding enough common ground in the informal Pentagon on the Cyprus issue to resume formal talks on a solution, but added that he welcomed the prospect of of the United Nations “.
Mr. Raab states this position in a reply letter to Leonidas Leonidou, a well-known writer and historian of the parish, who had addressed the British Foreign Secretary in his capacity as President of the Union of Cypriot Refugee Associations (EKEKA) of the United Kingdom.
Mr. Raab in the letter seen by KYPE also notes that during the informal meeting in Geneva he urged all parties to show “flexibility and compromise” to find a solution to the Cyprus problem “within the parameters of the UN Security Council”.
He noted that the same message had been sent earlier by both him and Undersecretary of State Wendy Morton.
The letter concludes by noting that the United Kingdom “recognizes the continuing difficulties faced by all Cypriots since the events of 1974” and that it remains committed to supporting the United Nations process to find a solution that “is in the interest of all Cypriots and will enhance regional stability and security. “
