  • [01] CHRISTOFIAS - TALAT - TALKS

    Cyprus President Demetris Christofias has assessed positively Monday`s meeting with Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat, in the framework of the UN-led negotiating process, which began in September with a view to reach a solution of the Cyprus problem. Speaking after the meeting, President Christofias said that the 14th meeting had a positive outcome, noting that there has been mutual understanding between the two sides.

    Asked what the harmonisation of relations between the constituent states and the federal government means, President Christofias pointed out that it means exactly what it says: the harmonization of the relations between the constituent states and the federal government. In so many words, he said.

    Christofias noted that during the tete a tete meeting he raised some issues, on which he expects answers from Talat.

    Asked whether the meetings will become more frequent in 2009, President Christofias stressed that the most important thing is not the frequency of the meetings, but the content of the meetings. Raising the issue of the frequency of the meetings is counterproductive, Christofias stressed, noting that today, due to the mutual understanding which prevailed, there has been a positive outcome in a meeting that lasted about an hour and a half.

    [02] GOVERNMENT - GAS - OCCUPIED AREAS

    Government Spokesman Stephanos Stephanou has said that the Republic of Cyprus has been asked to supply Cyprus northern Turkish occupied areas with gas and, as he pointed out, it responded positively to this request. In statements to the press, Stephanou said that there is a lack of gas used by hospitals in the occupied areas. We will supply them with gas which will be paid at the price it is currently purchased, he said, adding that its safe transportation has been secured.

    The Republic of Cyprus has responded positively to a request which has a humanitarian aspect, he added. Asked if a similar thing has happened in the past, Stephanou said that Cyprus Electricity Authority had in the past supplied the occupied areas with electricity, with the consent of the Cyprus government.

    I believe these are issues which help and promote trust between the two communities. They show that the Republic of Cyprus wants to take care and takes care of Turkish Cypriots as well, he added.
