The importance for the two sides in Cyprus to quickly reach an agreement on the terms of reference, underlined the UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres.
Mr Guterres said that in order to start settlement talks, the two side need to reach an agreement on the terms of reference.
“it’s very important to quickly come to an agreement on the terms of reference to be able to start substantial talks that this time I would hope would be different from all past ones. So that is the message I will convey to all the leaders that I will meet,” he said during during a press conference ahead of the 74th session of the UN General Assembly.
“I see a lot of impatience, namely the Security Council with the fact that there has been no progress. So I believe that there are very good reasons for the parties to understand that at least on terms of reference they need to come to an agreement,” the UN Secretary-General added it.
