Lavrov: UN guarantees for Cyprus are best

The most satisfactory guarantees for a unified Cyprus are guarantees provided by the Security Council of the UN, as opposed to the guarantees of one, or two, or three countries.

This, according to the Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, who made the above comment in response to a question by a journalist as part of press conference in Moscow, where Lavrov expanded on, among other issues, the recent Cyprob talks in Geneva.

The Russian Foreign Minister said that Greek and Greek-Cypriot officials agreed with the Russian position, however, certain Geneva participants refused to support the idea of holding the conference with the participation of the five permanent members of the UN Security Council (UNSC).

“This certifies, that certain parties do not want the version (of guarantees) according to  which the security of Cyprus is guaranteed by the UNSC, and not individual countries, or two-three others. I believe this is not right”, Lavrov said.
