The United Nations’ Report on Cyprus is expected to be finalised today.
The TRNC Presidency made its recommendations to the UN Special Representative for Cyprus Elizabeth Spehar on the deficiencies identified in the preliminary draft of the report and on what it thinks should be replaced.
In the 12-page report to the Security Council, United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres attributed the failures of the Cyprus Conference in Crans-Montana to “the parties’ lack of confidence and political will”.
“The United Nations is ready to contribute to the solution of the Cyprus problem, but the greatest task in this regard depends on the common will of the parties in Cyprus,” Guterres pointed wrote. “In the event of a call, we will continue from where the conference was left off”.
United Nations Secretary-General Spokesperson Stephane Dujarric, who made the statement before finalising the report, reiterated that the United Nations is bound by both sides to reach an agreement on the Cyprus issue.
Underlining that the role of the international organisation is to help reach an agreement, Dujarric stated that the Secretary-General had explained everything in his report and made a clear statement after the Cyprus summit.
After Guterres’ report is finalised, it is expected that President Akinci will make a detailed evaluation.
