UN Under SG for Peacekeeping Operations expected to visit Cyprus

UN Under-Secretary General for Peacekeeping Operations Hervé Ladsous is expected to visit Cyprus, a UN SG Spokesperson has said.

Deputy Spokesman for the Secretary-General Farhan Haq who was replying to a question on the matter during the daily briefing said Ladsous “intends to visit a number of places where UN peacekeeping forces are deployed”.

And, of course, he added, “we have one of our oldest longest serving peacekeeping forces; the UN force in Cyprus deployed there, UNFICYP.”

“And so we expect that he will be there to be apprised of their work”, he noted.

Haq continued to say that “if we have any details following that visit, we will certainly share that with you.”
