The Turkish Cypriots at the UN: the best two-state basis for the agreement with Cyprus

Rival leaders of Cyprus remain at polar opposites over what is needed for a peace agreement on the reunification of the ethnically divided island nation as UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres continues to try to restart dormant negotiations

GENEVA – Rival leaders of Cyprus remained at odds over what is needed for a peace agreement on the reunification of the ethnically divided island nation, as UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres continued on Wednesday seeking to restart dormant negotiations.

Guterres held subsequent contacts during the second of a three-day informal meeting he is hosting in Geneva with Turkish Cypriot leader Ersin Tatar and Greek Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades, but no breakthrough has emerged.

The meeting is also attended by the foreign ministers of the three “guarantors” of Cyprus: Greece, Turkey and Great Britain. It is the latest attempt by the United Nations to revive the peace process since another round of negotiations failed in 2017.

Five decades of talks with Cyprus have gone nowhere. The conflict has fueled tensions between NATO allies Greece and Turkey, thwarted Ankara’s attempt to join the European Union and triggered friction in the eastern Mediterranean over potential underwater hydrocarbon reserves.

The focal point of Wednesday’s talks was Tatar’s presentation to Guterres of a two-page document outlining the Turkish Cypriot vision for a peace agreement based on a two-state model rather than a federation made up of speaking zones. Greek and Turkish language.

Cyprus was divided in 1974 when Turkey invaded following a coup aimed at uniting the island with Greece. Only Turkey recognizes the Turkish Cypriot declaration of independence.

The Tatar document, released to the media, called on the UN Security Council to pass a resolution recognizing the separatist Turkish Cypriot north of Cyprus as a sovereign state, on the same level as the internationally recognized government in the Greek south. Cypriot.

The document said a peace agreement would then be drawn up between “two independent states” under the auspices of the United Nations.

Tatar’s adviser Ergun Olgun said the Turkish Cypriot side listened to Guterres’ encouragement to both sides to be “creative” and “offered ideas that went beyond the status quo and failed federal talks.”

The Greek Cypriots reject a two-state agreement because it would legitimize the permanent division of the island.

Anastasiades told reporters that he was “very disappointed” by the Turkish Cypriot proposal and that he would offer a detailed rebuttal to Guterres in writing.

“I told the secretary general that our effort is to create a positive climate without provocation and without references to all the unacceptable things we have heard,” said Anastasiades.

Guterres was expected to continue his contacts with the teams on Thursday.
