The 5+1 informal meeting on the Cyprus problem, which the UN Secretary – General ,Antonio Guterres has convened, continues on Thursday at 1000 local time, in Geneva, with a plenary session.
Guterres hosted on Wednesday evening a dinner for the parties participating in the informal meeting.
According to sources, Guterres asked the parties to reflect and meet during a new plenary session on Thursday at 1000 local time so that he can listen to their final positions in order to decide how to handle the situation.
Sources also noted that Guterres has canceled bilateral talks scheduled for Thursday.
Cyprus has been divided since 1974, when Turkey invaded and occupied its northern third. Repeated rounds of UN-led peace talks have so far failed to yield results.
