Eide: Hard work needed for Cyprus settlement

Hard work needed Cyprus settlement

UN Cyprus envoy Espen Barth Eide on Tuesday said the upcoming second Conference for Cyprus at the Crans-Montana Swiss resort would be marked a success if all parties involved agreed to a strategic agreement on the basic issues.

Such as security, guarantees, territory, property and governance in a reunited federal Cyprus.

Eide was talking to journalists in Athens after a two-hour-long meeting with Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias.

“But even if such a strategic agreement is achieved, a lot of work will still be necessary on economic, legal and other issues,” Eide also said.

“Hard work will be necessary, along with a lot of time… the talks there could go on for weeks,” he added.

Kotzias made no statements after the meeting.

Greece, Turkey and Britain are the divided island’s three guarantors and their representatives will also take part in the Crans-Montana meeting on June 28.
