Greek Foreign Minister calls on UN chief to intensify efforts for a Cyprus solution


Greece encourages the UN Secretary General to make further efforts to resolve the Cyprus problem, always within the framework of the UN Security Council Decisions, Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias has said.
Dendias was speaking after a meeting with Guterres at the UN headquarters in New York Thursday where he announced Greece’s candidacy for election as a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council for the 2025-26 term.
Apart from the Greek candidacy, Dendias said that they discussed with the UN chief a broader set of issues, including Cyprus and the potential for a new initiative there, following Nikos Christodoulides’ election in Cyprus.
Asked if Guterres made any reference to the appointment of an envoy, Dendias pointed to the visit to Cyprus by the UN Under-Secretary-General for Political and Peacebuilding Affairs Rosemary DiCarlo. “The Secretary-General awaits her report before consulting about the next steps” he added.
Dendias also said that Guterres welcomed Greece’s candidacy without being able to take a position on the matter.
According to reports, the two also discussed Greece-Turkey relations following the massive February 6 earthquake, developments in Ukraine and the eastern Mediterranean, environmental protection and women’s rights.
