[01] UN Security Council supports Annan's efforts on Cyprus

Members of the UN Security Council yesterday reiterated their full support for efforts by UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan to achieve a comprehensive settlement to the Cyprus problem.

In a statement to the press, the President of the Council, Ambassador Anwarul K. Chowdhury, the Permanent Representative of Bangladesh, said the members "welcomed and supported" the Secretary-General's intention to continue with the process he had initiated in November 1999. At that time, Mr. Annan announced the agreement of both parties to hold proximity talks aimed at preparing the ground for meaningful negotiations leading to a comprehensive settlement.

Members of the Council "continue to urge all those involved to engage with him constructively and effectively in the process," Ambassador Chowdhury said in a statement issued after the Council heard a briefing from the Secretary-General's Special Adviser on Cyprus, Alvaro De Soto.

The President also reaffirmed all Security Council resolutions on Cyprus, particularly resolution 1251 of 1999, which calls on both sides to refrain from acts of provocation, and reaffirmed that a settlement "must be based on a State of Cyprus with a single sovereignty and international personality and a single citizenship, with its independence and territorial integrity safeguarded, and comprising two politically equal communities."

The Council was also briefed on the UN Secretariat's consultations with the parties over the extension of the UNFICYP mandate. Pointing out that the Council members had noted the views expressed by the parties, Ambassador Chowdhury said the Council was "working on a draft resolution regarding the mandate renewal." He added that he would meet with the parties concerned on 13 June and predicted that the Council would be able to adopt its resolution on Friday, as planned.
