UN Special Representative Colin Stewart (centre) to hold separate meetings

UNSG special representative in Cyprus, Colin Stewart, will hold separate meetings on Tuesday with president Nicos Anastasiades and Turkish Cypriot leader, Ersin Tatar.

Anastasiades will receive Stewart at 11am at the Presidential Palace, while the UN official will meet with Tatar in the north at 3pm. The topic to be discussed is the two sides’ positions on the way forward, in light of the latest UN Security Council resolution for renewal of the UNFICYP peacekeeping term for six months more.

During a meeting of the council on UNSG Antonio Guterres’ reports on his Good Offices Mission and UNFICYP last month, Stewart said the focus of the mission is now to build trust and respect between the two communities and create a better environment for peace.
