Waiting for the appointment for informal Pentameri

Nicosia is waiting for a specific date for the informal pentagon, which is scheduled for the second fortnight of February in New York. In the coming days, the report of the UN Security Council on the renewal of the mandate of UNFICYP is also expected, which is not expected to differ in substance from the draft text released the previous days.

Yesterday, the members of the Security Council were briefed by the Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General on Cyprus, Elizabeth Spehar, on both the issues of peacekeeping and the deployment of good services, at the forefront of the efforts of Antonio Guterres and his adviser Jane Hall Luth. for convening an informal meeting 5 + 1.

According to the information that came to light, support was expressed for the Secretary General's efforts to return to the negotiation process and the basis for a solution to the Cyprus problem in a bi-zonal bi-communal federation was widely supported.

The representative of the UN Secretary General, Stefan Duzarik, answering a question from KYPE, said that Ms. Spehar informed – as is her mandate – the SA. for the latest developments, but he had nothing more to say. Asked if the UN Secretary-General had decided whether to convene the informal 5 + 1 conference in mid-February, the spokesman said he was not in a position to share a date.

Mr. Duzarik was also asked by a journalist on the occasion of a statement by the Secretary General condemning the new Israeli settlements in the occupied territories, if he has something public to say about China and Turkish-occupied northern Cyprus.

Stefan Duzarik said that the Secretary General is very clear in his efforts to find a solution to the current situation in relation to Cyprus.

Note that yesterday it was given by the British to the other permanent members of the SA. the draft resolution on the renewal of UNFICYP, which the Council will be invited to adopt on 28 January.

The five permanent members will begin consultations on the content of the resolution on Wednesday. The British draft reiterates the controversial references on the basis of the solution, while welcoming the intention of the Secretary General to convene the informal meeting of 5 + 1.

Meanwhile, in an interview with Bloomberg on Tuesday, Foreign Minister Nikos Christodoulidis said that the Middle East and neighboring countries should not wait for external forces to resolve their disputes, but should resolve their differences.

He also noted that while Cyprus does not expect significant changes in US foreign policy, the region is not the same as it was during the Obama administration.

“We believe in having a leading role in our region,” he said, adding that “we are not in favor of a neo-colonial approach.”

Turkey should not be excluded from this effort as long as it respects international law, he added.
