Annan underlines TC's commitment towards a comprehensive solution to Cyprus Problem

06 December 2006

The UN Secretary General Kofi Annan has underlined President Mehmet Ali Talat’s commitment towards a comprehensive solution to the Cyprus Problem.

Mr. Annan also repeated the need to remove the international isolation of the Turkish Cypriot People.

In his latest report to the UN Security Council on the United Nations operations in Cyprus, Mr. Annan expressed regret over the missed opportunities to find a solution to the Cyprus Problem during his 10 years in office.

The UN Secretary General also expressed his regret that the gap between words and deeds remained too great from him to resume his good offices mission in Cyprus.

Underlining President Talat’s commitment towards finding a comprehensive solution to the Cyprus Problem, the UN Secretary General said that he welcomed the Turkish Cypriot Side’s positive response to the letter sent by his Undersecretary for Political Affairs Ibrahim Gambari.

Mr Annan in his report also urged both sides on the island to show the necessary good will and determination to overcome their apparent deep mutual distrust and suspicion of each other’s motives.

Referring to efforts aimed at removing the international isolation of the Turkish Cypriot people, Mr. Annan said that he still stood by his May 2004 report which called on the Security Council to remove the international isolation imposed on North Cyprus.

Touching upon the Finnish Proposals, Mr. Annan said that the United Nations supported any initiative that may be mutually acceptable to both sides and that may contribute towards achieving the overall goal of finding a comprehensive solution to the Cyprus Problem.

He pointed out that such initiatives may have a catalytic effect and that efforts in that direction should be welcomed.

The UN Secretary General also expressed the hope that the two sides in Cyprus will put an end to the so-called ‘blame game’ which he said was in contravention of the spirit of the 8th of July Agreement.
