    Government Spokesman Vassilis Palmas said that the Republic of Cyprus has requested from the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) that a private settlement for the exchange of properties in Cyprus be reassessed.

    Commenting on press reports that the ECHR was ready to ratify the exchange of properties in Cyprus, Palmas said ``it is a fact that there is a case, where it appears that an effort is being made to arrange a private settlement, that is of exchange of property.``

    He added that the Republic of Cyprus had appealed to the ECHR and argued that ``this agreement should not be ratified because it is an agreement that is not compatible with the protection of human rights.``

    Palmas noted that the government had sent a letter to the ECHR, requesting that the matter be reevaluated, adding that the Republic of Cyprus may also ask for the matter to be forwarded to the plenary of the ECHR.

    He explained that a Turkish Cypriot living in the Turkish occupied areas of Cyprus could take the property of a Greek Cypriot refugee but it was not likely that the reverse could apply, since Turkish Cypriot properties in the government controlled areas of the Republic were protected by law.


    Government Spokesman Vassilis Palmas said there was a possibility for a new meeting between President Tassos Papadopoulos and Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat in October, with the implementation of the 8 July 2006 agreement on the agenda.

    Commenting on remarks by UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon in his annual report to the General Assembly that the July 8 agreement had not yet been implemented, Palmas said ``there is a reserved approach on behalf of the UN.``

    ``I understand that the UN Secretary General will wait for his meeting with the President of the Republic and possibly with Mr. Talat, so that he has a spherical and clear picture with regards the situation concerning developments in the Cyprus problem, and I think that after the picture he perceives, he will be a bit more specific and clear in his approaches,`` Palmas pointed out.
