UNSG’s report on UNFICYP circulated as official document 

 

The UN Secretary General’s report on the UN peacekeeping force in Cyprus (UNFICYP) circulated on Wednesday as an official Security Council document

The Security Council is expected to adopt the resolution renewing UNFICYP’s six-month mandate on July 26.

UN Secretary General, Antonio Guterres expresses in his report the conviction that Cyprus has remained calm and stable throughout the years in large measure because of the unwavering presence of the UN peace keeping force (UNFICYP), its preventive and deterrent capabilities and its role in defusing tensions. Furthermore, he proposes to the UNSC the renewal of UNFICYP`s mandate for six more months, until January 31, 2019.

Cyprus has been divided since 1974 when Turkish troops invaded and occupied 37% of its territory.
