    [03] De Klerk - Anastasiades - Vassiliou

    Nicosia, Feb 9 (CNA) -- Former South African President and Nobel Peace Prize winner Frederik de Klerk said today problems faced by particular countries are unique and general lessons must be applied and adapted to fill such needs.

    De Klerk who is in Cyprus at the invitation of the Popular Bank to give a lecture on "Peace and Reconciliation in divided societies: The experience of South Africa" met today with Acting President Nicos Anastasiades and former President of the Republic George Vassiliou.

    "I am not here to present myself as somebody who can help you to resolve the long-standing problems of Cyprus, but I do think that from our experience some lessons can be drawn which can have universal application," he said.

    Pointing out that "all countries have their own unique situations", he said "general lessons must be applied and adapted to fill the needs of a particular country".

    Referring to the South African experience de Klerk said, "I will put the lessons on the table. It's for you to decide which ones of those lessons are useful for the situation here".

    Anastasiades described his meeting with the former South African President as "extremely useful" and congratulated the Cyprus Popular Bank for inviting de Klerk to speak here.

    On his part Vassiliou stressed de Klerk "will have many useful things to tell us during his stay on the island".
