UNSC to Get Report After Cyprus Talks Fail

A UN spokeswoman says the Security Council will receive a report on Cyprus in the coming days after the collapse of the latest diplomatic effort to reunify the long-divided Mediterranean island.
Representatives from the EU, the Turkish and Greek Cypriot leaderships, and the grantor nations of Turkey, Greece and the UK, participated in the intense discussions that began at the end of last month.
Alessandra Vellucci says the UN adviser on Cyprus, Espen Barth Eide, “very much” retains his post after nearly two weeks of talks in the Swiss Alpine resort of Crans-Montana ended before dawn Friday with no deal.
Britain’s government said it was “enormously disappointed at the failure to reach a conclusion,” and called for “calm reflection and consideration of next steps.”
The UN is seeking a peace deal to unite Cyprus under a federal umbrella that could also define the future of Europe’s relations with Turkey, a key player in the conflict.
The Eastern Mediterranean island has been divided since 1974, when a Greek Cypriot coup was followed by violence against the island’s Turks, and Ankara’s intervention as a guarantor power.
