In mid-November, the UN Secretary General’s Special Envoy for Cyprus, Jane Holl Lute will be in Cyprus to prepare for the meeting of the leaders with the SG in Berlin. The announcement was made by President Nicos Anastasiades in Limassol who told reporters that Lute will be in Cyprus on 15th November for a meeting with him the following day at 1830 local time.
“It is a preparation held because of the meeting that will take place on the 25th November in Berlin with the UN Secretary-General”, he said.
Asked if he is optimistic about the meeting himself and President Mustafa Akinci will have with Antonio Guterres, Anastasiades said he hoped there will be results “if the other side possesses the same determination and political will we possess”.
Anastasiades further said that he will inform the National Council on the information we have and if necessary, public statements will be made. A meeting of the National Council is scheduled to take place ahead of the UN envoy’s arrival.
A Presidency statement said the relevant invitations have already been sent to the council members.
