The first element that emerges from yesterday's visit of Jane Hall Luth in Cyprus is that nothing has been locked so far, as the circle of contacts of the special envoy of the secretary general of the UN on the Cyprus issue is not over. The second element has to do with the fact that there is no difference in the positions expressed by the two sides, which intensifies the concern for a possible impasse. However, from the contacts, he has started to clarify the procedural part of “5 + 1”.
The third element that comes to the conclusion is that the United Nations does not want the “5 + 1” to be the end of the road to the Cyprus issue and indirectly tries to put the issue aside for the next day. It seems to clarify to the Turkish Cypriot side that there is no particularly suitable ground for what is being said about two states, while at the same time the Greek Cypriot side should approach the issue of political equality constructively.
Unexpectedly, Ms. Luth, after completing her round of contacts, will make another round so that all the details can be finalized before the informal meeting in Geneva. Today he travels to Athens where tomorrow he will have contacts on the Cyprus issue, while he will also have contact with the British Foreign Secretary on this issue. However, he is still waiting to lock in a date on which he will travel to Ankara for contacts with Turkish officials, a visit that is considered particularly important.
