Cyprus Talks

Joint declaration continues to elude UN

An agreement on a joint declaration that would kick start reunification talks continued to elude the United Nations on Saturday, despite efforts to bridge differences between the two sides.

The UN said a lot of hard work and good progress on the preparation of a joint declaration had been made, but “there is still some work to do.”
“… but we are cautiously optimistic that the declaration can be agreed in the days ahead,” a UN statement said.
It added that UN special envoy Alexander Downer was leaving Cyprus on Saturday night after a 24-hour extension of his current visit to the island.
Downer had extended his stay on the island to hold further meetings with Greek Cypriot negotiator Andreas Mavroyiannis and Turkish Cypriot negotiator Osman Ertug.
The meetings are part of efforts to bridge the gap between the two sides with a view to concluding a joint communiqué for the resumption of Cyprus talks.
