    Cyprus President: still a long way to go to new round of negotiations

    Larnaca, May 10 (CNA) -- Cyprus President Tassos Papadopoulos has warned against raising hopes too soon for the resumption of a new round of talks to solve the question of Cyprus.

    Speaking on his return from Moscow, where he had a brief encounter with UN Secretary General and the Turkish Prime Minister, he said he feels ''some kind of satisfaction that Recep Tayyip Erdogan has acknowledged that our side, sincerely and consistently, is seeking to find a political settlement'' and expressed hope that this would be widely accepted at home and abroad.

    Papadopoulos said he exchanged views with Kofi Annan about various moves that could be make to prepare the talks and said the Secretary General was pleased with what the Greek Cypriot side is doing towards this goal.

    ''We had a very good meeting in a very good climate, there was a mutual understanding of the positions each side had outlined as far as procedural matters are concerned, but let us not rush to welcome the resumption of some kind of initiative. There is still a long way to go before a new round of talks is properly prepared,'' he said about his talk with Annan and the Turkish Premier.

    President Papadopoulos said he talked to Annan during an official lunch the Russian President hosted for his guests, who attended Monday's commemorations to mark VE Day (Victory in Europe Day), the end of the Second World War in Europe.

    He explained that at the end of the lunch, Erdogan approached them at the table and the three of them exchanged views. Papadopoulos would not disclose anything about the content of the discussion, noting that any revelations may harm any prospects for a renewed effort to solve the problem.
