UNSG’s report on his mission of good offices in Cyprus out on Friday

UN Secretary General`s report on his mission of good offices in Cyprus will come out on Friday, his Spokesperson Stephane Dujarric said on Thursday, asking the press to wait for details.

Invited to comment on the report and the fact that in the past two reports the SG referred to new ideas, Dujarric refrained from answering.
“I will beg your indulgence and ask you to wait for the report to actually come out tomorrow,“ he told reporters.

Asked if he could elaborate what these new ideas are and what the SG was referring to, his spokesperson said:

“I understand you are talking about the past reports. The new report is going to come out and we just have to wait a little bit”.

Cyprus has been divided since 1974, when Turkish troops invaded and occupied its northern third. Turkey has ignored numerous UN resolutions calling for the withdrawal of the Turkish troops and respect of the integrity and sovereignty of the Republic of Cyprus.

Repeated rounds of UN-led peace talks have so far failed to yield results. The last round of negotiations, in the summer of 2017, at the Swiss resort of Crans-Montana ended inconclusively.

On Saturday the UN Secretary General’s Special Envoy for Cyprus, Jane Holl Lute will be in Cyprus to prepare for the meeting of the leaders, Cyprus President Nicos Anastasiades and Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci, with Antonio Guterres, in Berlin, on November 25.
