Written statement by the Government Spokesman Mr. Kyriakos Koushos about the telephone communication between the President of the Republic and the UN Secretary-General's Special Envoy on the Cyprus Problem

 The President of the Republic Mr. Nicos Anastasiades had, in the afternoon, today, a telephone communication with the Special Envoy of the UN Secretary-General for the Cyprus Problem Mrs. Jane Holl Lute, who informed the President that she intends to visit Cyprus toward the end of November, in the framework of her preliminary contacts in view of the intention of the Secretary-General of the UN Mr. Antόnio Guterres to convene an informal five-party Conference.

The President of the Republic asked Mrs. Lute to convey to the UN Secretary-General his thanks for the UN SG’s readiness to provide his good offices for the continuation of the talks for the solution of the Cyprus problem.

He also asked Mrs. Lute to convey to the UN Secretary-General that unilateral actions like the ones that Turkey is undertaking in the Exclusive Economic Zone of Cyprus and in the fenced city of Famagusta do not contribute to the creation of a good climate for a productive negotiation for the solution of the Cyprus problem.

On her part, Mrs. Lute assured the President of the Republic that she will convey his concerns to the UN Secretary-General.
