United Nations envoy Alexander Downer talks during an interview with the Associated Press at his office in the UN buffer zone in the divided capital of Nicosia, Cyprus, Thursday, Aug. 1, 2013. Alexander Downer says it would be a “major mistake” for the international community to pressure Cypriots into a deal reunifying the ethnically-split country amid a severe economic crisis. He said that a peace deal would eliminate tensions over the exploitation of offshore gas deposits and that a lot of preparation is being put into a resumption of talks expected in October after an 18-month lull.
