A group of delegates from the bi-communal peace initiative – United Cyprus met with the UN Secretary General’s Special Representative in Cyprus Elizabeth Spehar yesterday.
The delegation conveyed its views and concerns to Spehar regarding the standstill of the negotiations process. It also handed the UN Special Representative a joint letter, asking all actors, particularly the UN, to play a more active role in solving the Cyprus problem and implementation of confidence building measures:
“We, the civil society groups listed below, are extremely alarmed about the future of Cyprus. The island is drifting towards partition and the international community stands silent. It’s time for bold moves by all actors.”
The initiative also said it believed that a two-state solution in Cyprus would lead to a permanent division of the island. An outcome which it finds unacceptable.
