EUROPEAN COUNCIL DECLARATION
Declaration on Cyprus
The European Council discussed the Cyprus question in the light of the impasse in the intercommunal dialogue.
The European Council, deeply concerned at the situation, fully reaffirms its previous declarations and its support for the unity, independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity of Cyprus in accordance with the relevant U.N. resolutions.
Reiterating that the Cyprus problem affects EC-Turkey relations, and bearing in mind the importance of these relations, it stresses the need for the prompt elimination of the obstacles that are preventing the pursuit of effective intercommunal talks aimed at finding a just and viable solution to the question of Cyprus on the basis of the mission of good offices of the Secretary-General, as it was recently reaffirmed by Resolution 649/90 of the Security Council.
