Spehar Briefs Cyprus President About Her Contacts in the US

Spehar Briefs Cyprus President About Her Contacts in the US

UN Secretary General’s Special Representative in Cyprus and head of UNFICYP Elizabeth Spehar briefed Cyprus President Nicos Anastasiades on Friday for her forthcoming contacts with senior US and UN officials, including Antonio Guterres himself ahead of a discussion at Security Council level for the renewal of UNFICYP’s mandate.

In statements after the meeting at the Presidential Palace, Spehar said she had a “very good meeting” with President Anastasiades and his associates including Foreign Minister Nikos Christodoulides, adding that she talked to them “about my upcoming trip to the United States which I think will be quite important.”

“I will be leaving tomorrow evening for Washington DC first of all where I will be meeting with senior officials at the State Department probably also the national security council there to talk about Cyprus and their current views,” she noted.

Spehar added that “then I will move on to New York where I will be meeting with senior officials in the (UN) Secretariat, including the Secretary General.”

“I will also be meeting with the permanent five members of the Security Council and other Council members and this is all in preparation for the Security Council briefing which will take place in the afternoon of the 23rd of January,” she pointed out.

The UN official continued saying that she “will also be briefing the troop contributing and police contributing countries of UNFICYP of our peace keeping mission because the play a very important role in supporting our mission with our military colleagues here on the ground.”   

Ultimately, she stressed, “I hope to have a very good session with the Security Council on the 23rd ahead of their consideration of our mandate renewal.”

“The renewal of the UNFICYP mandate is likely to be considered by the Security Council members and decided at the very end of this month,” she said.

Cyprus has been divided since 1974, when Turkish troops invaded and occupied 37% of its territory.

Comprising military and civilian personnel from various contributing countries, UNFICYP arrived in Cyprus in March 1964 after intercommunal fighting broke out. The mandate of the force is renewed every six months by the Security Council.
