The island of Ireland offers a pathway to follow to solve the ‘Cyprus issue’


Lord Dennis Rogan, The Telegraph

The Good Friday Agreement turns 25 years old this year. Lord Rogan writes that Prime Minister Sunak should follow in the footsteps of Blair, Trimble, and those leaders who put aside their political differences to find a solution on the island of Ireland. The Cyprus issue could be looked at in a similar way – both are islands with two Peoples and two nations.

Lord Rogan, Deputy Speaker of the House of Lords writes that the TRNC has a right to exist, praising President Ersin Tatar for his forward-thinking ambition – a two State solution. Brexit offers the United Kingdom a chance to break the deadlock on Cyprus.
