The Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, my right hon. Friend the Member for Richmond (Yorks) (Mr Hague), and myself discussed how to support a Cyprus settlement with a number of EU member states in the run up to the Joint Declaration, signed by the leaders of the two communities in February 2014. This included a Foreign Secretary meeting with Greek Foreign Minister Venizelos. All ministerial discussions with the parties and EU member states are aimed at achieving a comprehensive settlement, including on the issue of the Varosha area of Famagusta.
