Question on Cyprus during UN press briefing

During yesterday’s (1.10.2021) international press briefing at UN Headquarters, the Deputy Spokesperson for the Secretary‑General, Mr Farhan Haq, replied to a press question as follows:

Question (Anadolu): Thanks Farhan. I’m just wondering why it has taken so long to issue a press release on Cyprus following a meeting between the Secretary-General and the two leaders from the island. Will there be a statement or not?

Haq: To be honest at this stage I’m not expecting anything. How shall I put this? When we don’t say something, it’s not that we’ve forgotten, it’s that a conscious decision is taken not to say something.
