The High Representative of the EU for Foreign Affairs Josep Borrell met with the UN Secretary General’s Personal Envoy on Cyprus, Maria Holguin on Wednesday to discuss the Cyprus issue.

In a post on X, Borrell said: “I had a good meeting with the UN Secretary General’s Personal Envoy on Cyprus…I expressed the EU’s full support to her and the UN efforts to find a lasting solution to the Cyprus issue.”

Holguin will return to Cyprus at the beginning of May, government spokesman Konstantinos Letymbiotis said last Friday.

Holguin will meet President Nikos Christodoulides again to discuss next steps regarding the Cyprus problem, Letymbiotis said.

“What we will repeat once again is our unwavering commitment to efforts to restart negotiations from where they were interrupted [in Crans Montana in 2017], as the European Union has emphasised, and our commitment to the Security Council’s resolutions and the agreed framework,” Letymbiotis said.
