UNSG recommends renewal of UNFICYP’s mandate, expresses concern over developments in Varosha

UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres recommended the renewal of the UN Peacekeeping Force in Cyprus (UNFICYP) mandate for six more months, in his report on UNFICYP, while he also expresses concern over the Turkish actions in the Turkish occupied area of Varosha.

An informal copy of the UNSG`s UNFICYP report was handed out to the members of the UNSC, while his report on his Good Offices Mission on the Cyprus issue is expected to be handed over later on.

In his UNFICYP report, the UNSG says that in the light of the continued contribution of UNFICYP to peace and stability and to the creation of conditions conducive to a political settlement, I recommend that the Security Council extend the mandate of the mission for six months, until 31 January 2022.
