  • [01] UNSG - CYPRUS QUESTION

    The international community should seize the momentum and the window of opportunity after the election of Demetris Christofias at the presidency of the Republic of Cyprus, UN General Secretary Ban Ki Moon has said.

    In statements to the press after his monthly working lunch with UN Security Council members, during which they discussed the Cyprus question, Kosovo and Darfur, Ban expressed hope ``that we will be able to see improvement and make some breakthrough in this long pending issue in Europe``.

    ``The international community should seize the momentum and the window of opportunity when Mr Christofias the new Cyprus president was elected and is committed to the resolution of this issue,`` Ban noted.

    Referring to his recent meeting with Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat in Dakar, Senegal, Ban said Talat ``also expressed willingness to engage in constructive dialogue``.

    ``In that regard I have decided to dispatch Under Secretary General Lynn Pascoe to lead an assessment team to engage in dialogue with all the stakeholders there. We hope that we will be able to see improvement and make some breakthrough in this long pending issue in Europe,`` he concluded.
