UK foreign secretary Boris Johnson expected in Geneva
British foreign secretary Boris Johnson is expected in Geneva today, hoping to clinch an agreement in the Cyprus peace talks.
The UK is one of the countries which guarantee Cyprus independence under the 1960 Zurich agreement.
There’s hope a deal could be possible after decades of failures. The UK is offering to give up half of its sovereign territory on the island if a deal can be struck.
It’s thought the UK Prime Minister Theresa May and the Turkish president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan are on stand-by to travel to Geneva if it’s thought their presence could help seal a deal.
