Eide sees a real possibility in “turning the page of history in 2017”

It is a real possibility that 2017 will be the year when the Cypriots, themselves, freely decide to turn the page of history, Special Adviser of the Secretary-General on Cyprus, Espen Barth Eide has stressed, in his message for the new year which was published on UN Cyprus accounts on social media.

In his message Eide says that "it is important to remember that it is the people who will make the final decision, once the leaders have done their job".

Building lasting peace, he underlines, means understanding the fundamental concerns of all peoples in a spirt of reconciliation, respect and recognition.
