    President Clerides - Cyprus question - Peace effort

    Nicosia, Oct 14 (CNA) - President Glafcos Clerides stressed here today he is prepared to sign an agreed settlement on Cyprus, if he considers that such a settlement is the best possible solution that can be reached and is a bicommunal, bizonal federation within the framework of UN resolutions.

    The President warned against a sudden decision to leave the negotiating table, stressing that this would be tantamount to "an act of national suicide and a highly irresponsible act" with serious repercussions.

    President Clerides also warned of the risk to see the fait accompli created by the 1974 Turkish invasion and occupation of Cyprus consolidated and witness the international recognition of the self-styled Turkish Cypriot regime in occupied Cyprus.

    He also stressed that perpetuating the situation in Cyprus entails "grave dangers", adding that substantive negotiations on all the aspects of the Cyprus question is the option to help find a settlement.

    Speaking at a ceremony organised by the main opposition party AKEL to mark 40 years since the Republic's independence, the Cypriot President pledged "I shall continue to work hard to fulfill the mission for which the sovereign people of Cyprus have elected me. I reiterate that I am determined to exploit every real opportunity to find a peaceful solution to our national problem."
