Strategy Breakfast with Greek Cypriot Negotiator Andreas Mavroyiannis

On April 20, 2016, the Atlantic Council’s Future Europe Initiative and Brent Scowcroft Center on International Security hosted a private strategy breakfast with Ambassador Andreas Mavroyiannis, chief negotiator for the Greek Cypriots in the UN-facilitated intercommunal talks on the Cyprus problem. Ambassador Mavroyiannis briefed the group on progress in the intensified settlement talks, Cyprus’s trajectory in the months to come, and the strategic implications of a Cyprus settlement.

Ambassador Mavroyiannis has previously represented the Republic of Cyprus as Ambassador to the European Union, the United Nations, Brazil, Ireland, and France, and was appointed Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in 2013 prior to assuming his current position as Chief Negotiator for the Greek Cypriot community. Ambassador Mavroyiannis has also served in various other capacities at the UN and as Deputy Minister to the President for European Affairs during the Cypriot Presidency of the European Council.
