In a simple statement issued late last night by the Office of the Secretary-General, the United Nations announced the meeting of Antonio Guterres with Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci.

“The Secretary-General and Mr. Akinci exchanged views on the prospects for renewed talks on the Cyprus problem”, the statement said.

The meeting lasted 20 minutes, after which the Turkish Cypriot leader left without making statements to the Greek Cypriot journalists and UN correspondents who were waiting for him. He spoke a little later at the offices of the Turkish Permanent Representation./ibna
