UN Secretary General`s Special Representative in Cyprus Elizabeth Spehar is on Tuesday set to brief, during unofficial consultations, Security Council members on recent developments in the Cyprus problem, in the light of two recent reports by Antonio Guterres on his good offices mission and Unficyp.

Spehar is also expected to refer to the forthcoming visit of Guterres` personal envoy Jane Holl Lute to Cyprus next week.

Furthermore, a draft resolution on the renewal of Unficyp’s mandate is expected to be presented by the British permanent representative to the other permanent members of the Security Council. The UN Secretary-General has proposed that the force`s mandate be renewed for another six months.

The US position on the mandate`s renewal is expected with interest since it has been known that the country is seeking to change the way UN peacekeeping forces operate around the world.

Greek Cypriot negotiator, Ambassador Andreas Mavroyiannis is also in New York where he is holding meetings with UN Secretariat officials and UN Security Council members.
