  • [01] DOWNER - UN SECURITY COUNCIL - CYPRUS ISSUE

    The UN Secretary-General`s Special Advisor on Cyprus, Alexander Downer, is expected to brief the UN Security Council on developments related to the Cyprus issue on November 23rd, President of the Council, Britains Representative to the UN, Mark Lyall Grant has said.

    According to well-informed diplomatic sources, the update - which will take place during informal consultations - will take place prior to the report of the Secretary-General for his good offices mission, something that is expected to be presented at the end of November. A report on the UNFICYP mandate will follow.

    Originally, the United Nations and the British presidencys plans were for Downer to inform the Council immediately after the report, provided that the tripartite meeting of the UN Secretary General with the community leaders took place early November. Plans changed, however, when the tripartite meeting was set for the 18th of November.

    A meeting of the Security Council on November 24 is expected to discuss UN peacekeeping operations, based on the mandate of the Security Council illustrated by a presidential statement on February 12, 2010, to review them with the aim of improving their effectiveness.

    Cyprus, which joined the EU in 2004, has been divided since 1974, when Turkey invaded and occupied its northern third. President Demetris Christofias is engaged in peace talks with the leader of the Turkish Cypriot community Dervis Eroglu to reunify the country.
