    Here in Cyprus the mandate is very clear. We don't have a new mandate. And this is the reason why I suggested that we had to try to get a new mandate for UNFICYP. But in my opinion this has to be done in the course of negotiations. The new mandate for UNFICYP depends on the political negotiations -- what kind of future will Cyprus have?--and then we will have to see what kind of new function, UNFICYP will have to fulfil, perhaps a buffer zone or perhaps a control function, protection the population in the two areas of control. All this has to be clarified.

    Background: The form of an eventual peace settlement in Cyprus - and the role in it of United Nations peacekeeping forces - came under review at a news conference given by U.N. Secretary General Kurt Waldheim in New York yesterday, (16 September).

    Dr. Waldheim gave the first indication that the island is to be divided into seperate areas for the Greek and Turkish Cypriot communities - zones of control, he called them - with perhaps a buffer zone maintained by the U.N. force, UNFICYP.
