Government spokesperson Konstantinos Letymbiotis said on Friday that it is “conceivable” to expect visits from the United Nations in the near future.

Letymbiotis said “on our part all efforts are being made” and expressed his belief that this is being appreciated at both a domestic and international level.

He added that President Christodoulides has embarked on a “great diplomatic effort” through bilateral contacts and aims to cultivate a positive climate and a positive agenda regarding the Cyprus problem.

Letymbiotis further added that the proposal for greater EU involvement in negotiations is aimed at creating the conditions to resume negotiations from where they were interrupted in Crans Montana in 2017.

According to Letymbiotis, the government’s efforts to resume negotiations are set to culminate in September with the UN General Assembly.

The government hopes that by then, the EU will have appointed an envoy for the Cyprus Problem, with Letymbiotis saying that simultaneous efforts have been taken towards both the EU and the UN regarding appointments of new envoys.

Despite this, Letymbiotis conceded that he cannot say what steps the UN will take, while also saying that the government is waiting for the upcoming Greek elections to pass. He expressed hope for a “stable Greek government”.
