    Government Spokesman Stephanos Stephanou has said that there are no deadlines concerning the achievement of a political solution of the Cyprus problem. Stephanou noted that the Greek Cypriot side participates in the talks with a view to reach a solution the soonest possible. Negotiations began early September 2008 between the leaders of the two communities in Cyprus, Cypriot President Demetris Christofias and Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat with a view to find a political settlement in Cyprus, divided since the Turkish invasion of 1974.

    The Greek Cypriot side is doing everything possible. We submit positions at the negotiating table, which serve the agreed basis for a solution, a solution as provided in the relevant UN resolutions, he pointed out. Invited to comment on press information that this November is considered a deadline for concluding the negotiations, Stephanou stressed there are no deadlines.

    «We have no deadlines in front of us. We discuss with the aim to reach a solution the soonest possible, he said. Replying to questions, the Spokesman said that Turkeys EU accession course is one of the tools, which could contribute to the achievement of a solution. One of the tools we use to help efforts to reach a solution of the Cyprus problem is to exploit all those possibilities we are given through Turkeys accession course, bearing in mind that the Republic of Cyprus is a member state of the EU and through its EU course, Ankara has undertaken responsibilities which have to do with the EU and the Republic of Cyprus as well, he noted.
