UN Concerned About Ongoing Tensions in Cyprus’ EEZ, Spokesperson Says

“We would not want to see any incidents, and we are obviously concerned about the ongoing tensions in that area,” the UNSG spokesperson Stephane Dujarric said when asked to comment on the start of the exploration drilling in the Cyprus’ exclusive economic zone (EEZ) by ENI – Total.

Dujarric was also asked about the Cyprus talks in Crans Montana and how the UN Secretary-General sees the continuation of the role of the international organization in the talks.

“You know, it’s clear that the positions of the various parties in Crans Montana were still… the difference is wide enough that the conference had to be closed” he said and reiterated the statement made by the Secretary-Genera that “the UN remains willing and available and at the disposal of the parties willing to come to an agreement, and our facilitating role stands.”
