Peter Droussiotis, Federation President, met yesterday with Julian Huppert, Liberal Democrat MP for Cambridge, as part of the Federation’s efforts to maintain and strengthen relations with the main British parties represented in Parliament.
The meeting, which was also attended by UK Cypriot Liberal Democrat Councillor George Pippas, who represents St Edith’s ward on Cambridge City Council, was held in a very cordial atmosphere at the House of Commons.
After the meeting, Mr. Droussiotis said:
“I was delighted to meet Julian Huppert today, who is an influential Member of Parliament within the Liberal Democrats, a partner in the Coalition Government. This was an opportunity for me to profile our community in this country, to explain our focus on efforts to reunite Cyprus and to emphasise our desire to build a closer relationship with the leadership of the Liberal Democrat party and its MPs and peers in Parliament.
“Julian and I agreed to broaden the dialogue with the involvement of his colleagues and our Federation representatives in the weeks and months ahead.”
