    [04] Russia - Cyprus problem - Tchizhov interview

    Moscow, May 14 (CNA) -- Russia remains active in the Cyprus question and has both the will and the obligation as a permanent member of the UN Security Council to keep the issue alive in the UN, Moscow's former envoy for Cyprus Vladimir Tchizhov told CNA, expressing support to a federal solution on the island as stipulated for in numerous resolutions.

    In an interview with two CNA journalists visiting Russia at the invitation of the ITAR TASS news agency, Tchizhov said the Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot side have elaborated on their positions in the first two rounds of proximity talks held so far and Moscow expects "to hear something more" from the third round.
