european union leaders meeting in brussels

President Nicos Anastasiades is set to meet UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres at 11.30 on Friday in the Belgian capital after reiterating on Thursday his determination to work closely with him to reunify Cyprus in his intervention during the ongoing European Council in Brussels.

Government Spokesman Kyriakos Koushos in a written statement said that President Nicos Anastasiades underlined his readiness to cooperate constructively with the Secretary General in efforts to reunite Cyprus, on the basis of United Nations parameters while UNSG Antonio Guterres promised to continue his efforts to create the right conditions for a meaningful dialogue on the basis of a clear mandate from the Security Council.

The UNSG is set to meet Turkish Cypriot leader Ersin Tatar at 12.20.

A 5+1 Informal Meeting that took place in Geneva, on April 27-29, failed to find enough common ground to allow for the resumption of formal negotiations in relation to the settlement of the Cyprus problem.
