Now is the “best chance” for the heads of Cyprus to find an agreement, Special Advisor of the UN Secretary-General on Cyprus, Espen Barth Eide, stated in Geneva on Friday, after reunification talks this week ended without a definitive conclusion. Eide advised the leaders of the divided island to “use the best of the momentum that still exists, while it still exists," in order to reach an agreement.
