Diplomatic circles in the north described Allen’s appointment as “an important development”


Turkish Cypriot daily Kibris Postasi (30.03.17) reports that diplomatic circles described as “an important development” the appointment of the UK’s Special Envoy on Cyprus Jonathan Allen, especially in this crucial period of the Cyprus negotiation process.

Recalling that the role of the former UK’s Special Envoy on Cyprus Lord David Hannay was very important especially during the Anan plan period, the paper writes that Allen’s appointment took place during the Geneva Summit on January 12 and points out that Allen was also head of the British delegation during the Mont Pelerin talks in Switzerland on January 18.

Allen who will be arriving in the island today, will meet with both President Anastasiades and the Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci. The paper writes that Allen’s meeting with Akinci was scheduled to take place today at 09.30.
