President Nicos Anastasiades will meet with UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres during his trip to New York to attend an investment conference.

Anastasiades, who is the keynote speaker at Capital Link’s ‘Invest in Cyprus’ Forum, will be meeting with the UN Secretary-General during his time in New York next week. Undoubtedly he will discuss the current deadlock in the Cyprus negotiations with Guterres.

The talks came to a halt last month after the south’s parliament controversially voted to commemorate Enosis Day in schools. Until the decision is rescinded, Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci refuses to return to the negotiating table.

UN Special Envoy to Cyprus Espen Barth Eide met with both community leaders this week, in an attempt to reignite the talks.
