Ban ki-Moon Backs Envoy’s Report

UN Spokesman Stephane Dujarric, has said that Ban ki-Moon, the UN Secretary General,  fully supports his Special Advisor for Cyprus. He noted that the latter stands by the report of Espen Barth Eide.

“The UN Secretary General fully backs the work of his special envoy Espen Barth Eide and stands by his report. As in many cases – in general terms – reports of the Secretary General elicit reactions from one side or another. There is no reason for us to comment on the reactions to the SG’s report”, Dujarrric said.

The Cyprus government “expressed great disappointment and dissatisfaction on the contents of the UN Secretary General`s report on the activities of the United Nations in Cyprus during 21 June 2015 until 15 December 2014 and has made written and verbal representations at the highest level,” according to CNA.
