Member of the House of Representatives, Kyriakos Hadzigianis, referred to the positive climate in the negotiations between the two leaders in Cyprus, in an intervention at the 2015 Autumn Meeting of the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly, held from 15-18 in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia.
An official statement said the Cypriot member of the House, expressed the hope that the talks will have a positive outcome to end the continued violations of the fundamental human rights of Greek Cypriot refugees and enclaved by Turkey as well as the human rights of the missing persons and their families.
Hadzigianis referred to the need for Turkey to comply with the relevant decisions of the European Court of Human Rights, adding that the key to a solution lies with Ankara.
He wondered what interests does the presence of 40 thousand Turkish troops on EU member ground serve, adding the return of the fenced off part of Famagusta to its lawful citizens would constitute an act of good will on the part of Turkey and a confidence building measure that would positively contribute in efforts for a solution.
Hadzigianis urged the OSCE to support the current negotiations in Cyprus that aim for the reunification of the island.
Cyprus has been divided since 1974 when Turkish troops invaded and occupied the island`s northern third.
