The Secretary-General of the U.N. Antonio Guterres urged all parties involved in the Cyprus talks to “seize the opportunity” for an agreement on the reunification of the island, in a statement released on Tuesday, ahead of the new Conference on Cyprus which will be held in Crans-Montana on June 28.“The opportunity for the reunification of Cyprus is now finally before us. I call on all concerned players to seize this opportunity, for Cyprus first and foremost, but also for the wider Eastern Mediterranean region,” he said.

“To this end, as Secretary-General of the United Nations, I reiterate my steadfast commitment to supporting this effort. I urge all participants to demonstrate the will and leadership required to conclude a comprehensive settlement,” he added.

Guterres said the last conference on Cyprus, held in January, marked a historic step in the efforts to overcome decades of division. “Today, I am encouraged by the reconvening of the Conference in Crans-Montana, Switzerland. I welcome the determination shown by all participants in taking this important step” he said.
