    Leaders and representatives of Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot political parties met today at their regular meeting, in the UN controlled buffer zone, and reiterated their support for a political settlement in Cyprus.

    They exchanged views on the resumption of intercommunal talks and ways to help the two community leaders to move forward and reach an acceptable solution of the Cyprus problem to the maximum satisfaction of both sides.

    After the meeting which was organised by the embassy of Slovakia, the Ambassador Anna Turenicova said that there was a general agreement on the subject of supporting the community leaders on their discussion with the expectation that a just, lasting and functional bizonal, bicommunal federal solution based on political equality, as it is defined in the relevant UN resolutions, will follow these meetings.

    The participants of the political parties meeting stressed the necessity for more substantial confidence building measures starting with the opening of Ledra street, which would facilitate movement to and from the islands northern Turkish occupied areas, added Turenicova.

    The next regular meeting of the leaders and representatives of political parties will be held on the 16th of April.

    Todays meeting took place two days before Cyprus President Demetris Christofias and Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat meet, the first such encounter since Christofias was elected to the presidency in February this year.
