UN official expected in Cyprus next week

A high ranking official of the UN Secretariat is expected to visit Cyprus at the beginning of November, according to local media reports.

Citing sources, the Cyprus News Agency has reported that details of the forthcoming meeting will be published in the coming days. The official is expected to meet with Cyprus President Nikos Christodoulides and Turkish Cypriot leader Ersin Tatar.

The visit, the report said, was going to take place in October, however this was not possible, and therefore it was rescheduled for the beginning of November.

On the sidelines of the Cairo Peace Summit on 21 October, President Christodoulides had a chat with UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres and Under-Secretary-General Rosemary DiCarlo. The President has previously welcomed Guterres' commitment to appointing an official who will look into the prospects for resuming talks to resolve the Cyprus problem, with the UNSG expected to make announcements soon.
