    In a video message to the UK Cypriot community the Chairman of the Conservative Party assured that “the Conservatives will always support the Cypriots in their efforts to reach a just, lasting and balanced solution'

    Statements of support for reunification effortsof Cyprus on the basis of the internationally agreed framework was secured from the largest British parties ahead of the July 4th elections by the National Cypriot Federation of the United Kingdom.

    In a video message to the UK Cypriot community, Conservative Party Chairman Richard Holden assured that “the Conservatives will always support Cypriots in their efforts to reach a fair, lasting and balanced solution to reunite their island”.

    “We know how painful it is for so many Cypriots that the island has been divided for almost 50 years. A solution will benefit all Cypriots and should be based on the UN resolutions for a bi-zonal, bi-communal federal state, ensuring the territorial integrity of the Republic of Cyprus”, he noted.

    Mr. Holden also spoke of the “success and contribution” of the British Cypriot community and made special mention of the work of the pro-Cypriot candidate for North London MP Theresa Villiers, who has been supporting the Cypriot cause for a number of years in the House of Commons.

    The Conservative leader added that the party's other north London candidates, such as Amit Jogia and Alex Dean, would continue the same great work.

    On behalf of the Labor Party, shadow Europe Minister Stephen Doughty initially expressed pride in the “dynamic” Cypriot community for the “close, historic and strategic ties” between the two countries, which a Labor government would work intensively to deepen.

    “This is certainly a critical and difficult year for all Cypriots during the 50th anniversary,” the Labor official continued.

    “Given the UK's role as a guarantor power, a Labor government would work with all parties and regional allies to build the foundations for a lasting solution to the Cyprus issue on the basis of a bi-zonal, bi-communal federation in line with relevant SA resolutions of the UN and for the reunification of Cyprus on the basis of the political equality of all communities”, he said.

    Mr Doughty also spoke of new momentum in the resolution process with the appointment of the UN Secretary-General's Personal Envoy, with whom he has discussed the UK's role.

    In his statement he added, among other things, that Labor wants renewed diplomatic efforts for a solution, that it will always support the security, sovereignty and prosperity of Cyprus and that it wants to ensure that the next generation of Cypriots does not grow up under the division of the last 50 years.

    “If elected, a Labor government would come round the table and undertake the difficult diplomatic effort fulfilling our role as guarantor, ally and friend of all Cypriots,” Mr Doughty's statement concluded.

    < p class="text-paragraph">The Liberal Democrats were also in favor of the reunification of Cyprus with a statement by the party's foreign affairs representative Leila Moran.

    “Liberal Democrats believe that Cyprus will succeed best as an independent and reunified state on the basis of reconciliation and equality for the fundamental rights of both the Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot communities,” he said.

    The party also called on the two communities to reach a reunification agreement and said it saw the DDO model of political equality, with a federal government with one international sovereignty and citizenship as the best way to to achieve this reunion.

    Mrs. Moran added that the solution must be in line with UN Security Council resolutions and High Level Agreements, respect the rule of law and the fundamental rights of all Cypriots.

    “We believe that positive dialogue between the two sides and communities should be the first step towards a mutually acceptable agreement on the security needs of both Cypriot communities. We therefore urge all parties to seek a just and sustainable resolution to this long-standing conflict, which has caused so much misery over so many years,” the Lib Dem foreign affairs spokeswoman concluded in a statement.

    In addition to the statements, it is noted that the Conservative Party has once again included Cyprus in its pre-election manifesto, i.e. in the program with measures and commitments in the event of re-election. Specifically, in the section on “Leadership in the world” it states, among other things: “We will multiply our efforts to help achieve significant diplomatic progress in Cyprus, Sri Lanka, Sudan and Myanmar”.

    The President of the UK National Cypriot Federation, Christos Karaolis, expressed his gratitude to the three parties for the “undisputed” reaffirmation of support for the agreed basis of the UN for a solution of Cypriot.

    Mr. Karaolis also expressed his satisfaction with the fact that at least 50 candidate MPs have already signed the so-called Commitment Card towards Cyprus.

    By accepting the Federation's Commitment Card, the candidates are committed to support for efforts to restart talks for a solution based on SA resolutions and the European acquis.

    The Charter also commits the candidates to work to uphold and not undermine the resolutions on Cyprus, to not undermine the non-recognition of the pseudo-state by the United Kingdom through the London-Ankara Free Trade Agreement and to strengthen Cyprus' bilateral strategic cooperation – United Kingdom.

    “We urge all British Cypriots to discuss the Commitment Card for Cyprus with their candidate MPs, to support candidates who have shown their support for Cyprus and to make sure they go to vote on July 4”, added Mr. Karaolis.< /p>
