Andreas Mavroyiannis will continue to serve as the negotiator of the Greek Cypriot side in the UN-led negotiations for a Cyprus settlement, Government Spokesman Nicos Christodoulides told CNA.
Christodoulides said Mavroyiannis will return home on Wednesday and will participate in the next meeting between Cyprus President Nicos Anastasiades and Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci in the framework of the peace negotiations, scheduled for Friday.
Mavroyiannis failed to be elected during a vote at UN headquarters in New York on Monday for the seat of the President of the 71st Session of the UN General Assembly. Fiji Permanent Representative to the UN, Peter Thomson, was elected. Thomson received in total 94 votes, while Mavroyiannis got 90 votes.
