UN envoy Jane Holl Lute, has started consultations in order to create the conditions to prepare for a new meeting for the Cyprus issue, the UNSG`s Spokesman Stéphane Dujarric has said.
“Jane Lute has started consultations in order to create the conditions to prepare for a new meeting of the so-called 5+1, I meant, plus the United Nations, which means the two Cypriot communities and the guarantors, Turkey, Greece and the United Kingdom,” he said.
Dujarric added: “We hope that this meeting would be possible and hope that this meeting will allow for the restart of the discussions that took place in Crans-Montana.” He said they need to restart.
Invited to comment on the Turkish president`s statement alluding to a two state solution in Cyprus, he said:
“Obviously, in the context of these conversations and in the course of these discussions, each party has the right to take the initiatives that each party wants. Our objective at the present moment is to be able to bring the parties together and to restart where we ended a few months ago”.
