National Council meets to review latest developments on Cyprus problem

The National Council, the country’s top advisory body is meeting on Thursday morning at the Presidential Palace to discuss latest developments on the Cyprus issue.

The meeting follows talks in Nicosia on Monday between Cyprus President Nicos Anastasiades and UN Special Envoy, Jane Holl Lute.

Anastasiades has expressed to Jane Holl Lute his readiness to take part in an informal five-party conference in the context of a letter the UNSG sent on October 26, Government Spokesperson Kyriacos Koushos has said.

On Tuesday, UN Secretary General`s Spokesperson,  Stéphane Dujarric said in New York  that Lute is continuing her consultations with all concerned parties, including the guarantor powers.

Cyprus has been divided since 1974, when Turkey invaded and occupied its northern third. The latest UN backed round of talks took place in 2017, in the Swiss resort of Crans Montana, but failed to yield any results.
