Remarks by the Government Spokesman about the appointment of a Special Advisor to the UN Secretary General on the Cyprus problem

Remarks by the Government Spokesman about the appointment
of a Special Advisor to the UN Secretary General on the Cyprus problem
We have been consulted and briefed by the UN Secretary General about his intention to appoint a new Special Advisor on the Cyprus problem, said the Government Spokesman Mr Nikos Christodoulides today. In his remarks to reporters, at the presidential residence in Troodos mountains, on the sidelines of the meeting of the Council of Ministers, Mr Christodoulides in response to a question said that “the President of the Republic, after briefing the leaders of the parliamentary parties, has expressed the consensual/positive opinion of Nicosia. The process is under way, there are internal UN procedures, at the end of the day it the exclusive prerogative of the Secretary General, and we must wait for the final decision perhaps by around the end of the week when the relevant announcements will also be made. The appointment of a Special Advisor by itself is important and it is an indication of the international interest on the Cyprus problem. At the same time, we must say that the appointment by itself cannot bring about results. What we hope for and expect following also the recent elections in Turkey is the more active involvement of Turkey in the process, so that there will be specific results. - 20.8.2014

We proceed with the proposed methodology and in that direction there will take place a series of meetings, next week, both with the team of the interlocutor as well as with the leaders of the political parties, in order for them to be briefed on an important project that is being done by the interlocutor’s team and so that we can have the reaction of the party leaders at a follow-up conference certainly before 2 September. In other words, there will be two conferences with the political party leaders: one for briefing on and handing of the project that the interlocutor’s team will complete, and the second for the views of the parties to be heard, once they have been briefed. - 18.8.2014
