President Mustafa Akıncı has said that they are not pleased with Eide’s attitude and statements. He said, “We want Eide to be more honest. We want him to say clearly with whom the responsibility lies. We want him to publicly say what he says to us in private. However, we know that he cannot do that.”
Former negotiators Ergün Olgun and Osman Ertuğ have criticized the UN Secretary General’s Special Adviser on Cyprus Espen Barth Eide for the statements made on the issue of Security and Guarantees and for “going beyond his authority”.
