The Committee on Missing Persons (CMP) has been organised to exhume the remains of missing persons from both sides of the divide, identify them and return the remains to their relatives.

Last week, representatives of the CMP visited Brussels to ask for further financial and political support for this task.

UNFICYP issued a statement on Wednesday saying that the CMP had met with members of the European Parliament’s budget committee, senior EU officials and representatives of several EU member states.

The statement said that the aim of these meetings “was to secure further financial and political support for the CMP’s exhumation, identification and return of remains project. The European Union is the biggest contributor to the CMP since its operations started in 2006.”

The EU “recognised the necessity of continuing to support this key humanitarian task in Cyprus and bring closure to the bereaved families”.
