  • [01] SPOKESMAN - CYPRUS ISSUE

    Cyprus President Demetris Christofias is cautiously optimistic as to the prospects for a Cyprus settlement, Government Spokesman Stephanos Stephanou has said.

    Invited to comment on the course of the ongoing direct negotiations between Christofias and Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat, Stephanou said that the President of the Republic has said many times that despite the fact that he is not satisfied by the progress achieved at the negotiations so far, he remains cautiously optimistic as to the prospects for a Cyprus settlement.

    Stephanou refrained from commenting statements by Talat after his meeting on Tuesday with Christofias, noting that negotiations are taking place at the negotiating table.

    President Christofias and Talat have been engaged in direct negotiations since early September this year, aiming at reuniting the island, divided since the 1974 Turkish invasion.
