The hon. Gentleman makes my point for me. Famagusta is largely occupied by people who have no entitlement to be there. That should cease.

I conclude with some words from a poem by Dr. Kyriakos Hadjiyoannou:

  • "Eternal city
  • Paradise on earth
  • of the scent of lemon blossoms,
  • of the golden sands
  • and the sapphire sea,
  • from the depths of my heart,
  • in my pain
  • from afar,
  • I greet you."

May it not in the future be from afar that the citizens of Famagusta must greet their beautiful town.
