  • [01] CHRISTOFIAS - TALAT - MEETING

    The leaders of the two communities in Cyprus have reached agreement on the issue of harmonisation and cooperation between the federal government and the constituent states.

    This was achieved during their first meeting of 2009, in the framework of direct negotiations, which began last September in order to reach a solution of the Cyprus problem.

    UN Secretary Generals Special Representative in Cyprus Taye-Brook Zerihoun said after Monday`s three-hour meeting that the leaders, President of the Republic of Cyprus Demetris Christofias and Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat have reached full agreement on the issue of harmonisation and cooperation between the federal government and the constituent states or federal units.

    He added that they are also very close to an agreement, they have full convergence, on the issue of hierarchy of norms and have decided to continue this discussion to overcome the remaining obstacles.

    Zerihoun added that the leaders held at first a tete a tete meeting.

    Their next meeting will take place on Monday, January 12th during which they will take up the issue of past acts, according to Zerihoun.

    UN Secretary Generals Special Advisor for Cyprus, Alexander Downer, will arrive Friday in Cyprus to attend Mondays meeting.

    The leaders have been engaged in direct negotiations since early September this year, aiming at reuniting the island, divided since the 1974 Turkish invasion.

    [02] CHRISTOFIAS - TALAT - GAZA

    President of the Republic of Cyprus Demetris Christofias and Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat have condemned the attack against Gaza and called on the international community to bring the violence to an immediate end.

    A joint statement, issued by Christofias and Talat here Monday, said that the two leaders condemn the attack against Gaza and the disproportionate use of force applied by the Israeli forces, that has led to huge loss of life of innocent civilians, including women and children. They urge the international community to use its influence to bring the violence to an immediate end, the statement added.

    The statement was issued after Mondays meeting of the two leaders held here in the framework of the UN- led negotiating process, which began in September with a view to reach a solution of the Cyprus problem.
