    Minister for Europe, Caroline Flint, comments on the cancellation of military exercises in Cyprus


    Caroline Flint MP, Minister for Europe, today said:

    "I applaud the decision of the two leaders in Cyprus to cancel the military exercises and parades that were due to take place later this month, and in November. This is a very positive development which shows what can be achieved through trust and co-operation. I encourage the leaders to continue to conduct negotiations in the same constructive manner."
