The UN Secretary General’s special envoy, Jane Holl Lute, met with the head of the UN peacekeeping force in Cyprus, Elizabeth Spehar, in Nicosia on Monday morning, ahead of the separate meetings with the island’s two leaders scheduled for Tuesday.
Lute arrived in Cyprus on Sunday evening, before consulting with Elizabeth Spehar and her team dealing with the Cyprus Problem on Monday morning.
On Tuesday, Lute is set to hold separate meetings with the Turkish Cypriot leader Ersin Tatar at 11am, before meeting with the President of the Republic of Cyprus Nicos Anastasiades at 7pm.
Lute will depart from Cyprus on Wednesday, when she will fly to Athens for consultations with the Greek government, though it has yet to be confirmed when she will be travelling to Ankara.
As regards the UK, the third guarantor power, the Cyprus News Agency has reported that Lute is already holding telemeetings with the UK government, and it remains unclear whether she will be travelling to London for tête-à-têtes.
