  • [01] UN CHIEF - CYPRUS TALKS

    UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is confident that the talks for a Cyprus solution will bear fruit, Michele Montas, Ban`s spokesperson has said.

    During yesterday`s briefing, Montas was asked about Ban`s comment on press reports that the UN-led direct negotiations between the leaders of the two communities in Cyprus continue but there is no hope for progress.

    ``The Secretary-General does not share that point of view. He thinks that there is hope and that the talks are going to continue and theyre going to bear fruit,`` Montas said.

    Recalling that Ban has met with all the parties personally, Montas concluded by saying the Secretary-General is ``very confident that there will be a positive response.``

    [02] US AMBASSADOR - CYPRUS TALKS

    The entire international community, including the US and President elect Barack Obama, will support any agreement reached between the leaders of the two communities in Cyprus, US Ambassador Frank Urbancic has said, noting that the solution does not depend on foreign parties, but on Cypriots themselves.

    The US diplomat expressed the view that the two leaders of Cyprus, who began direct negotiations last September with a view to reunify Cyprus, divided since the Turkish invasion of 1974, are dedicated to finding a solution to the islands cruel division.

    He called upon the Cypriot people, Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots, to support the effort of the leaders, President of Cyprus Demetris Christofias and Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat, and warned that the compromises that the two communities will be asked to make will be hard and painful.
