CYPRUS FACT SHEET - 3 April 2014


President meets with UNSG

President Anastasiades met on 2 April 2014 with the UN Secretary General Ban–Ki Moon in Brussels. According to a UN spokesperson: “They discussed the current state of play and the way forward in the talks for a comprehensive settlement of the Cyprus issue. The UNSG urged Mr Anastasiades to maintain the current momentum following the February resumption of full-fledged negotiations. He stressed the United Nations’ commitment to assisting the sides in reaching a comprehensive settlement in Cyprus. The Secretary-General and Mr Anastasiades agreed on the importance of implementing mutual confidence-building measures on the island.” The Cyprus President reiterated to the UNSG that confidence building measures will contribute significantly in changing the atmosphere, by giving a new push to the dialogue, while he also repeated that it is of great importance for everybody – both the Turkish Cypriots, as well as the UN – to understand the upgraded role Europe has to play, since the desired Cyprus solution is the evolution of the Republic of Cyprus into a federal state, which will be at the same time an EU member state.
