New UN envoy to Cyprus will visit island after 27 January

President Nikos Christodoulides has said the Cyprus Government has been informed by the European Union that the personal envoy of the United Nations Secretary-General for the Cyprus problem has expressed her readiness to substantially contribute to all stages of the negotiation process.

“I consider the announcement (of the appointment) of the personal envoy of the UN Secretary-General particularly important. She has already begun contacts; she had a meeting with our Permanent Representative in New York, a very good meeting, and considering the content of what has been discussed, I can tell you that she is aware of many details. She is ready to work and I believe she will help us in our efforts to resume talks.”

He added that  Holguín Cuéllar will visit Cyprus after January 27, “not only for a day as we had requested from the beginning”, and that after her visit in Cyprus, she will visit the guarantor power countries, Brussels and other capitals.

Christodoulides said that “we are ready to welcome her to Cyprus and do whatever is possible, not just with words but with actions, so that conditions are created for the resumption of talks with one and only goal: a solution based on the agreed framework.”
