The Cyprus talks in the Swiss re­sort of Cran­sMon­tana will con­tinue to­day on a more op­ti­mistic note as United Na­tions Sec­re­tary-Gen­eral An­to­nio Guter­res has said that there is a “clear un­der­stand­ing” be­tween the Greek and Turk­ish sides with re­gard to what is needed to reach a com­pre­hen­sive deal. Guter­res said his meet­ings on Friday be­tween Cyprus Pres­i­dent Ni­cos Anas­tasi­ades and Turk­ish-Cypriot leader Mustafa Ak­inci, and the Greek and Turk­ish for­eign min­is­ters were “pos­i­tive and re­sults-ori­ented.” For his part, Greek For­eign Min­is­ter Nikos Kotzias praised the UN chief as a “prom­i­nent per­son­al­ity on the in­ter­na­tional stage.” “I must tell you that I felt for­tu­nate that we could work [on Friday] in a very good di­rec­tion for the Cyprus is­sue,” he told re­porters.
