Κυπριακό 2000-2001 : αδιέξοδο ή αρχή μιας νέας διαδικασίας λύσης;

Βαγγέλης Κουφουδάκης

Abstract


The essay analyzes the diplomatic process and the political background
that led to the proximity talks that started in New York on September 12,
2000, continued in Geneva and came to a deadlock in Nicosia at the beginning
of January 2001.
The author examines the “non-papers” submitted to the President of the
Republic of Cyprus and to Turkish-Cypriot leader Raouf Denktash by U.N.
Secretary General Kofi Annan and his mediator, Alvaro de Soto. The paper
identifies new procedural and substantive elements in this latest negotiation
attempt. The U.N. prepared and submitted “non-papers” on key aspects of the
Cyprus problem. The United States and the United Kingdom fully supported
and participated in this process.
Even though the talks ended in deadlock, the author argues that the new
negotiating process and the principles that became the foundation of the U.N.
“non-papers”, will be determining factors in any future diplomatic initiative on
Cyprus.
