Downer to visit for farewells

Former UN envy Alexander Downer is due in Cyprus at the end of this month, the Cyprus News Agency reported on Tuesday.
Citing sources, the agency said Downer would be on the island to say farewell to the two leaders but is not expected to attend their meeting on March 31.
Downer stepped down from his UN job on February 11, only hours after the resumption of Cyprus talks, for which he was not present. The move came after President Nicos Anastasiades gave him the official stamp of disapproval months ago in a public interview, suggesting Downer was not an objective mediator.
Days later Australian newspapers reported that Downer was a given for the post of Australia’s High Commissioner to the UK, which was expected to be announced this month.
