    Security Council says Turkish side less constructive in talks

    Nicosia, Jul 9 (CNA) - The UN Security Council notes in a statement issued today that the Turkish Cypriot side has been "less constructive" than the Greek Cypriot side in efforts to solve the Cyprus problem and in this regard expresses its disappointment that progress remains slow and the June target date for agreement had not been met.

    In a statement read out by the Security Council President, British Permanent Representative to the UN Sir Jeremy Greenstock, after the Council was briefed by the UN Secretary General's Special Adviser on Cyprus, Alvaro de Soto, about the course of the UN-led direct talks aiming to solve the Cyprus problem, the Security Council urges both sides to work with de Soto so as to enable him to establish the component parts of a comprehensive settlement which takes full consideration of relevant Security Council resolutions and treaties.

    The Council adds that its members "welcomed the support given to the talks and to the Secretary General's efforts by the heads of state and government of the EU meeting in Seville on June 21 and 22, and by the Foreign Ministers of the G8 on June 13".

    "The members of the Council expressed disappointment that, despite the Secretary General's valuable personal involvement, including when he visited the island in May, progress remained disappointingly slow and the June target date for agreement had not been met", the statement notes.

    It also points out that the members of the Council "noted in this regard that the Turkish Cypriot side has been less constructive in its approach so far and had declined to support the goal of resolving the core issues by the end of June" and "also noted with regret that the call by the members of the Council on May 2 that the UN should play a fuller part in the talks has not yet received the requisite response".
