UN envoy continues with shuttle diplomacy between Cyprus leaders

UN Secretary Generals Special Adviser on Cyprus Espen Barth Eide believes that both sides in Cyprus would like to solve the Cyprus problem and they would like to solve it in June in Geneva, noting however that theres significant difference on “how to do that and in what sequence and what depends on what.” In statements to the media after a meeting he had with Cyprus President Nicos Anastasiades, Eide said that there is no disagreement on the need to put particular emphasis on the chapter which has been least discussed, which is the chapter of security and guarantees. Eide also met with Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci. Government Spokesman Nikos Christodoulides said Eide had not conveyed any mediating proposal.
