Greek FM accuses Eide of lobbying for the Turkish Cypriots

Spokesperson for the United Nations Secretary-General Stephane Dujarric has said that the UN Secretary-General’s Special Adviser on Cyprus Espen Barth Eide, who was accused by Greece for lobbying for the Turkish Cypriot side instead of acting like a UN mediator, was very much doing his work as a UN Special Adviser and doing a very good job.

Greek Cypriot daily ‘Phileleftheros’ had earlier reported that the Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias sent a letter to the UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres accusing Eide of lobbying for the Turkish side.

Responding to a reporter’s question from the Anadolu Agency regarding the letter during his daily press briefing yesterday, Dujarric said “I haven’t seen the letter, but we have full confidence in Mr. Espen Barth Eide and the fact that he is very much doing his work as a UN Special Adviser and doing a very good job.

Eide has been acting as the UN Secretary-General’s Special Adviser on Cyprus since August 2014 and coordinating the negotiations between the two Cypriot communities on behalf of the UN.
