    President of the Republic Demetris Christofias fully informed the National Council on Monday on the course of the direct talks he is engaged in with Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat with an aim to reach a solution of the Cyprus problem.

    According to a statement read out to reporters by Government Spokesman Stephanos Stephanou, the members of the National Council submitted their views and opinions in a positive and constructive atmosphere.
