UN Envoy Hopeful About Talks

Espen Barth Eide, the UN Secretary General’s Special Adviser on Cyprus, is hopeful that UN-led talks, suspended by Cyprus President Nicos Anastasiades in response to Turkish violations of the Republic’s exclusive economic zone (EEZ),

“We are working hard now to see how we can develop conditions for going back to the table and how we can have a speedy process once we are back at the table. And I think everybody knows what are the parameters,” regarding the Turkish vessel Barbaros and the issues of hydrocarbons.
Eide made his statement after meeting Thursday night with President Anastasiades. He said “both sides agree that hydrocarbons is a prerogative of the federation,” according to CNA.
