Switzerland participated in the funding of the UN peacekeeping force stationed on the island (United Nations Peacekeeping Force in Cyprus, UNFICYP). In addition, from 2000 to 2004, it was a member of the UN delegation tasked with negotiating possible solutions for the reunification of the island. A conference on Cyprus was held in March 2004 at the Bürgenstock in Switzerland under the auspices of the UN. Switzerland also hosted several rounds of talks aimed at resolving the Cyprus question in Mont-Pèlerin, Geneva and Crans-Montana in 2016 and 2017.
It also provides regular support to the Committee on Missing Persons in Cyprus (CMP), whose mission is to recover, identify, and return to their families the remains of those reported missing since the occupation of 1974.
