UN's Guterres: No 'quick fix' in talks to unite Cyprus

Greek and Turkish Cypriot leaders are close to reaching a deal on unifying the island,  according to the United Nations chief, who cautioned, however against any "quick fix" to end decades of division.

Speaking from Geneva, Switzerland, where talks aimed at ending 40 years of stalemate are currently under way, Antonio Guterres said that major work remained on how to implement and guarantee a final pact.

"We are coming very close to what is the settlement," Antonio Guterres told reporters in Geneva on Thursday, adding however that key issues remained unresolved.

"You cannot expect miracles of immediate solutions, we are not looking for a quick fix," he said. "We are looking for a solid sustainable solution."
