UNSG’s envoy meets with President Anastasiades

UNSGs envoy Jane Hall Lute, arrived this morning at the Presidential Palace in Nicosia where she holds now a meeting with President of the Republic Nicos Anastasiades. Present at the meeting is also Greek Cypriot negotiator Andreas Mavroyiannis.

Lutes mission on the island is to investigate the ground for the resumption of the stalled UN-led Cyprus talks.

In early afternoon, she will meet Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci in the northern Turkish occupied part of Nicosia.

The UN official will depart for New York tomorrow morning. CNA has learnt that as soon as her meetings in Athens, Ankara, London and Brussels are confirmed, she will return to Europe.

Beginning of September she is expected to submit a report to the UNSG on her contacts with the interested parties.

Meanwhile, a group of Cypriots gathered outside the Presidential Palace this morning asking for the resumption of the Cyprus talks that would lead to a solution to the Cyprus problem.

The Republic of Cyprus remains divided since the 1974 Turkish invasion of the island. Numerous UN-backed talks, aiming at reunifying the island under a federal roof, have failed to yield any results. The latest round of peace talks took place last July at the Swiss resort of Crans Montana but ended inconclusively.
