UK former Special Representative to Cyprus, Lord David Hannay talked about the Cyprus issue and the negotiation process  at an event in the House of Lords .

Hannay has said that as long as people insisted on human rights, a solution in Cyprus would not be possible.

Hannay is believed to have said that it was economically beneficial to forget the past and for any natural gas discovered off the coast of Cyprus in the Exclusive economic zone (EEZ) to be transported to Europe through Turkey as the only viable solution.

Responding on a question that a bi-zonal, bi-communal federation violated Greek Cypriot human rights, Hannay said that if the Greek Cypriot side wanted this then he wished them ‘good luck’ with that.
