UN official briefs Security Council on UNFICYP and Cyprus issue

The UN Secretary General’s Special Representative in Cyprus, Elizabeth Spehar, briefed the UN Security Council members on Monday on the UN Peacekeeping Force in Cyprus (UNFICYP) and developments in the Cyprus issue.
The briefing covered the whole spectrum of issues in the reports, including cooperation between the two sides to address the COVID-19 pandemic, exploration for hydrocarbons and tension in the exclusive economic zone of Cyprus, developments in the buffer zone, and what needs to be done to promote cooperation in military matters.
A diplomatic source said the common denominator of the briefing and interventions was the concern over violence against peacekeepers, as well as restrictions in UNFICYP movements.
