    [08] UN Special Adviser - Cyprus question

    Nicosia, Mar 8 (CNA) The UN Secretary-General's special adviser for Cyprus Alvaro de Soto today expressed the view that the international circumstances are in place to reach a settlement to the protracted Cyprus problem, but noted that the sides involved must be willing to compromise.

    Speaking at a press conference with which he ended his first visit to the island since his appointment last year, de Soto also said the UN is conducting the new round of talks with Security Council resolutions indicating the path.

    Replying to the possibility of face-to-face talks between the Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot sides taking place, the UN envoy said this is not the only way to conduct negotiations and underlined the importance of negotiations being meaningful when they begin so as to lead to a comprehensive settlement.

    He also said that confidence building measures are not under discussion even though there is an ample choice of such measures that could be made by the two sides.
