    Any new United Nations initiative on the Cyprus problem should be adequately prepared, so as to ensure the best possible prospects for a successful and lasting outcome, Cypriot President Tassos Papadopoulos said here on Tuesday, receiving the credentials of the first Ambassador of Honduras to the Republic of Cyprus, stationed in Italy, Roberto Ochoa Madrid.

    President Papadopoulos said the 8 July 2006 Agreement, reached between him and Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat, which has the full support of the United Nations Security Council, can create the conditions necessary for the commencement of substantive negotiations under the auspices of the UN Secretary General for a solution of the Cyprus problem.

    He noted that ``mindful of this and in response to the recent call of the Security Council, I proposed a meeting between myself and Mr. Talat in order to initiate the implementation of the Agreement, as we have witnessed a long delay in the realisation of the 8 July process`` and noted that he looked forward to meeting Talat on 5 September.

    ``Our purpose is to break through the deadlock and expeditiously move forward with the implementation of the 8 July process,`` he stressed.

    The Agreement provides for the establishment of working groups to address substantive issues of the Cyprus problem, and technical committees for the day-to-day problems that affect the people, as well as confidence building measures.

    The new Ambassador of Honduras said his country has been present in all the UN resolutions for keeping the peace in Cyprus.

    ``During our participation in the Security Council, we supported all those resolutions in favour of its freedom, sovereignty, and integrity, as well as all those peace keeping measures and especially supporting any humanitarian work in the area,`` he noted.

    Furthermore he noted that Honduras saw with great respect and admiration the good will action of the Cypriot government when on 8 March 2007 the wall dividing the country and its capital, Nicosia, was demolished.
