Eide Holds Hope for Cyprus Settlement, Sees 'No Unbridgeable Differences Between the Two Sides'

All hope is not lost for the Cyprus Talks to conclude a fair and just settlement agreement for the divided island that has seen its northern third occupied by Turkish troops since they invaded in 1974.
The United Nations Special Envoy, Espen Barth Eide commented that he is still hopeful for a resolution, even following last week’s breakdown of the latest round of talks between the Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades and Turkish-Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci at the Swiss resort of Mont Pelerin.
The talks are said to have come to a standstill at Mount Pelerin when the two leaders could not reach an agreement on territorial adjustments and the number of displaced Greek-Cypriots who would be allowed to return to their properties in the northern third of the island.
On Monday, Eide returned to Cyprus where he had separate meetings with the two leaders. He later commented to reporters that he saw “no unbridgeable differences between the two sides” and that he intended to “to listen to both leaders, to hear what their views are about what to do next,” and that the talks had the full support of the UN Security Council and the secretary-general.
He also underlined that the pressure is on the two Cypriot leaders to determine the next course of action, saying, “it’s in their hands to make up their mind about which are the right steps right now.”
