Antonio Guterres will attend Crans-Montana conference on Friday

Stéphane Dujarric, Spokesman for the UN Secretary-General, has confirmed that Antonio Guterres will be attending the Conference on Cyprus in Crans – Montana, Switzerland, on Friday.

Speaking during the daily briefing, Dujarric said that “as the Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs, Jeff Feltman, announced a short while ago in Switzerland, the Secretary-General will travel to Crans-Montana to attend the Conference on Cyprus.”

“He will be there on Friday and we expect the Secretary-General to be back at the office on Wednesday morning, on 5 July,” he added.

It has not yet been ascertained how many days Guterres will be at Crans – Montana.

Dujarric also referred to a statement to the press by Feltman that “the Secretary-General’s message to the two leaders is to seize this historic opportunity to solve a decades-long problem.”

The Conference on Cyprus reconvened on Wednesday in an attempt to push the peace process forward and help find a negotiated settlement to reunite Cyprus, divided since the 1974 Turkish invasion.
