UN Secretary General’s Special Adviser to Cyprus Espen Barth Eide said that decision of privacy was taken during the negotiations by the leaders and he also stated that he should obey this decision. However, Eide stressed that the transparency is necessary in terms of informing the public as soon as possible. Greek Cypriot daily Politis gave wide coverage to an interview conducted with Eide. Eide stated that the process is developing independently but with the aim of completing the chapters and there is a process where the goodwill is evaluated.
Furthermore, Eide said that they did not mention the details much, in order to prevent the spreading of aspects out of the subject of the negotiations.
Eide said that there is a principal of ‘nothing is agreed until everything is agreed” adding that when they reach on enough consensus, they can publish to the
