Secretary of the CTP, Kutlay Erk has issued a statement regarding the assigning of Norwegian former Foreign Minister Espen Barth Eide as Cyprus Special Advisor by United Nations secretary Ban Ki Moon, ‘Kibris Postasi’ reports.

The statement is as the following:

The assigning of Norwegian minister Espen Barth Eide as the Cyprus Special Advisor by United Nations secretary has been received by our party with pleasure.

We can foresee that the Norwegian advisor will contribute to the solution of the Cyprus problem and that the process would continue with the help of the UN. Our expectation from the UN envoy who will be coming to our island in September is to convince both leaders to sit on the solution oriented table with the UN criteria’s.

It is hopeful to see that within the forty years of the Cyprus problem the UN—for the first time—is appointing a European consultant from a neutral European country such as Norway. We know that Norway is interested in the Cyprus problem and has a strong data base and information about foreign relations. For this reason we are hoping that Mr Eide will be the last appointed advisor, and his arrival will be a catalyst for result-oriented talks.
