UN spokesman says Guterres supports Eide

UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres supports his Special Adviser on Cyprus, Espen Barth Eide, and believes he is doing a good job in trying to bring the sides together in efforts to solve the Cyprus problem.

Replying to questions regarding remarks made by President of the Republic of Cyprus Nicos Anastasiades about Eide in an interview with newspaper Kathimerini, Deputy Spokesman for the Secretary General, Ferhan Hak, said we are aware of comments made in the media regarding Mr. Eide.

The Secretary General supports Mr. Eide’s work. He believes he has been doing a good job for trying to bring the parties closer together. Ultimately, for any peace agreement to move forward, the parties themselves have to be willing to move. And ultimately that is what is needed to happen, Hak added.
