(Nicosia, 26 February 2019) - The Committee on Missing Persons (CMP) wishes to express its sincere thanks to the People’s Republic of China for its first ever donation of EUR 10,000 made today on the occasion of the visit to the CMP Laboratory of the Chinese Ambassador to Cyprus, H.E. Mr. Huang Xingyuan. The Ambassador of China underlined the support of China to the CMP’s humanitarian efforts and discussed possible areas of cooperation with CMP Members.

This contribution to the CMP Project on the Exhumation, Identification and Return of Remains of Missing Persons in Cyprus will support the Committee’s goal of identifying and returning as many remains of missing individuals as possible to bring an end to the uncertainty which has affected so many families for so many years.

So far, 927 missing persons from both communities have been identified and returned to their families for dignified burials.

The CMP relies on donor support to alleviate the suffering of the concerned families.
