That this House expresses its continued concern about the illegal occupation and governance of the northern part of the island of Cyprus by Turkey following its invasion in 1974; notes that despite international efforts Turkey refuses to withdraw its military forces, or allow Greek Cypriot citizens to return to their homes and properties, whilst encouraging wrongful settlement in the area by immigrants whom they allow to exploit land and properties expropriated from their rightful owners without any regard for national Cypriot cultural heritage; and calls on the Government as a guarantor power, to insist of Turkey that it adopts a more constructive attitudein negotiations aimed at establishing a viable, fair and lasting solution tothe problem,and that asa gesture of goodwill it should agree to allow refugees from the ghost town ofFamagusta and surrounding areas to returnto their homes as outlined in United Nations Security Council Resolutions 550 (1984)and 789 (1992).
