The UK remains committed, as a guarantor power, to supporting the Cyprus peace process, a spokesperson of the Foreign Office has said.

The spokesperson told CNA it was hoped the meeting on November 25 in Berlin between UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, President Nicos Anastasiades and Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci would pave the way for the resumption of talks.

Asked to comment on the informal five-party meeting that is expected to take place in December with the participation of the three guarantor powers, namely Greece, Turkey and the UK, the spokesperson said: “The UK welcomes the prospect of a meeting between the UN Secretary-General and the leaders of both communities.”

“We hope that the meeting will pave the way for the resumption of talks aimed at achieving a comprehensive settlement on the Cyprus issue. As a guarantor power, the UK remains committed to supporting this process.”
