What you’re seeing is actually a genuine chance, a genuine opportunity, which your leaders are actually grasping. We agreed that we shall not reveal the details of the talks, and I will not start now, but what I want to tell you is that yesterday and today have probably been the best days in my current job because of the creation of this unique atmosphere of trust, and will, and leadership. After agreeing between the two sides on where they already stand on known issues, they have now started going into the new, complicated issues that you all know about, and they are doing that with a high degree of respect, creativity, and will to find solutions, and will to understand each other, that I think is unique in Cyprus but unique in the world right now.

The teams are now dealing with all the difficult issues that you all know, in a way that is characterized by mutual respect, mutual understanding, sometimes arriving at agreement, sometimes continuing to disagree, but always in a spirit of saying “we will find solutions to these issues”.

 What you’re seeing is actually a genuine chance, a genuine opportunity, which your leaders are actually grasping. We agreed that we shall not reveal the details of the talks, and I will not start now, but what I want to tell you is that yesterday and today have probably been the best days in my current job because of the creation of this unique atmosphere of trust, and will, and leadership. After agreeing between the two sides on where they already stand on known issues, they have now started going into the new, complicated issues that you all know about, and they are doing that with a high degree of respect, creativity, and will to find solutions, and will to understand each other, that I think is unique in Cyprus but unique in the world right now.
It’s very encouraging.Yesterday, a very solid leaders’ meeting; today, a meeting of the excellent negotiators, Mr. Ozdil Nami and Mr. Andreas Mavroyiannis, who also, like their leaders, have found a good tone of working together.
But leaders cannot change the world on their own. They need support. And that is why I am so happy to be here with you tonight, to listen to wonderful music, to hear beautiful poetry, but also to feel the will and the spirit - among all of you - to give that support, to give that encouragement and also to demand that the leaders move on and move forward, because they need support and encouragement in the negotiation phase. Later they need support to get the “yes” in future referendums, and then they will need support to implement what they agreed about. This is important - it’s not easy. There will be good days and bad days, but with this kind of spirit that I feel here tonight, I think that it is almost impossible to say that peace will not come, because peace really has a chance in Cyprus. Thank you so much for being here.

Statement of the Special Adviser following the leaders’ meeting on 29 June
       

 it’s actually being spent on very substantive, serious negotiations. What has happened now, marked by today, but beginning after the last meeting, is that we have moved from the stocktaking phase to actually really negotiating, and that’s what’s happening in here, and I’m very, very encouraged. I came here as an optimist, when I came back yesterday. I am even more optimistic now and it’s based on the substantive following of two leaders who are committed to solving a long-standing problem. I just wanted to give that [overview] because I think they need praise and recognition for the efforts they are making on substance

Statement delivered by Special Adviser of the Secretary-General on Cyprus Espen Barth Eide on Thursday, 29 June 2015
       
Determined to keep the pace of their meetings and in line with their joint commitment to a leader-led process, the Greek Cypriot leader, Mr. Nicos Anastasiades, and the Turkish Cypriot leader, Mr. Mustafa Akıncı, met today in a positive and results-oriented atmosphere.
The leaders are now immersed in substantive negotiations. Their focus is on unresolved core issues. To enable their discussions today, the negotiators provided the leaders with an update on the work they have carried out on a specific set of core issues across the chapters of governance, property and criteria on territory.
Mr. Akıncı and Mr. Anastasiades discussed those issues at length in a pragmatic and constructive manner, making further progress. They provided new guidance to the negotiators, who will meet three more times this week to carry forward their work on core issues.
On the topic of confidence building measures, the leaders continued their exchange. They took stock of the work done to implement already agreed confidence building measures, expressing satisfaction with the progress made to date. Mr. Anastasiades and Mr. Akıncı expect that practical solutions to any pending issues will soon be found, bringing the implementation of those measures closer to completion.
The leaders exchanged views on the economic prospects that would arise from a solution.
With substantive negotiations now at the centre of their work, Mr. Akıncı and Mr. Anastasiades reiterated their resolve to reach a comprehensive settlement as soon as possible.
Within the positive climate, the leaders will jointly participate in the event that will be co-organized by the Cyprus Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the
Turkish Cypriot Chamber of Commerce on 8 July. On the same day, they will also jointly participate in a meeting with religious leaders.
Their next leaders’ meeting will be on Friday, 10 July.
