Her Majesty's Government, following the collapse of the Cyprus Talks at Crans Montana, and in the light of their responsibility to guarantee the independence, territorial integrity and security of Cyprus, whether they are planning to adopt new or revised tactics to achieve their strategy towards Cyprus; whether their strategy will support the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus achieving international recognition; and whether they will seek to establish direct flights between the UK and Ercan.
It is disappointing that the Conference on Cyprus at Crans Montana ended without agreement. The Government continues to work for a just and lasting settlement in Cyprus that will benefit all Cypriots. We are encouraging all parties to reflect on the outcome and consider the best path ahead.
On the question of direct flights, the UK Court of Appeal has confirmed that direct flights from the UK to Ercan would breach obligations under international law.
