Technocrats meet in Mont Pelerin to prepare for five-party conference

Following last week’s Cyprus conference in Geneva, a working group of technocrats from both sides and its guarantor countries are meeting in Mont Pelerin, Switzerland today to lay the groundwork for the resumption of negotiations on security and guarantee arrangements in the event of the reunification of Cyprus.

The Turkish Cypriot delegation consists of negotiator Ozdil Nami, Presidential Spokesman Baris Burcu, the President’s special advisor on Diplomacy and EU Erhan Erçin, legal advisor Sul Karabacak, foreign affairs expert Ipek Borman Genç and member of the negotiating team Sertaç Güven.

The Greek Cypriot delegation consists of chief negotiator Andreas Mavroyiannis, a negotiating team member Toumazos Tselepis, lieutenant colonel Neophytos Pachoulidis, academic Aris Constantinides, diplomat Pantelis Pantelides and diplomats serving at the negotiator’s office.

While the technical talks will last for 2-3 days, the 5-party conference will resume at the end of this month or the beginning of February, sources say.
