The absence of a solution in Cyprus is “increasingly unsustainable,” UN chief says

The absence of a solution to the Cyprus problem is “increasingly unsustainable,” UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has said, stressing that since the collapse of the UN-brokered talks in the Swiss resort of Crans Montana in July 2017, tensions on the island “have progressively increased over time.”
“I continue to believe that the absence of a resolution of the Cyprus problem is increasingly unsustainable. The lack of negotiations since July 2017 does not mean that the situation on the island remains unchanged, either at the political level or in the buffer zone,” Guterres said in an unofficial copy of his report for the renewal of the UN Peace Keeping Force in Cyprus mandate, handed over to the members of the Security Council.
