Eide: Leaders should not let this opportunity slip by (2)

UN Secretary Generals Special Advisor on Cyprus, Espen Barth Eide, believes there is still a lot to be done in Cyprus and the leaders of the islands two communities should not let this opportunity slip by.

In the second part of his interview with the Cyprus News Agency, Eide said that the security issue is going to be discussed late in the process and is one of the decisive issues, noting that if the two sides want to overcome their mutual fears, they do not necessarily have to be overcome with security solutions, but perhaps with a credible political set-up.

He further said that the donor issue is one of the international dimensions of the Cyprus problem and when the leaders reach it, any kind of involvement of guarantors will happen through the UN.
