Financial Mirror (Cyprus) - - FRONT PAGE -

UN Sec­re­tary Gen­eral Ban Ki-moon and Turk­ish Prime Min­is­ter Ah­met Davu­to­glu agreed on Mon­day on the im­por­tance of the ne­go­ti­a­tions for a com­pre­hen­sive set­tle­ment in Cyprus, as well as Tur­key’s role in sup­port­ing the process.

“The Sec­re­tary-Gen­eral and the Prime Min­is­ter dis­cussed at length the sit­u­a­tion in Syria and Iraq, in­clud­ing in­ter­na­tional ef­forts to com­bat the threat posed by ISIL and move to­wards a con­flict.

The Sec­re­tary-Gen­eral warmly thanked the Prime Min­is­ter for his coun­try’s very gen­er­ous sup­port to the huge in­flux of refugees from Syria,” an of­fi­cial press re­lease said.

“The Sec­re­tary-Gen­eral and the Prime Min­is­ter agreed on the im­por­tance of the ne­go­ti­a­tions for a

to the com­pre­hen­sive set­tle­ment in Cyprus, as well as Tur­key’s role in sup­port­ing the process,” it said.

Ban and Davu­to­glu also dis­cussed de­vel­op­ments re­lated to the Mid­dle East Peace Process, “es­pe­cially the cur­rent need to keep ten­sions down in Jerusalem” and ex­changed views on the alarm­ing sit­u­a­tion in Ye­men, as well as the prepa­ra­tions for next year’s cru­cial World Hu­man­i­tar­ian Sum­mit to be held in Is­tan­bul.
