    The leaders of the two communities in Cyprus have agreed on the process for the solution of the Cyprus problem and the UN has accepted that agreement, Government Spokesman, Stephanos Stephanou has stressed. Stephanou was commenting on statements by Hasan Ercakica, spokesman of the Turkish Cypriot leader, who talked about the need for a new Burgenstock, where in March 2004 the two community leaders participated in UN-sponsored talks, which led to a solution plan (the Annan plan), the result of UN arbitration and not negotiation between the two sides.

    The plan was rejected by the overwhelming majority of the Greek Cypriots, saying it would not reunite the country but it served the interests of Turkey. The Turkish Cypriots approved the plan.

    I do not know if Mr. Ercakica is making statements in an effort to impose a new process, which in fact, does not exist, Stephanou said. He also clarified that the ongoing direct talks are based on the process that has been agreed between the two leaders. The process does not provide for tight deadlines or arbitration, and aims at finding a comprehensive settlement on the basis of a bi-zonal, bi-communal federation with political equality as defined by the UN resolutions, that will provide for one state with a single sovereignty, a single citizenship, a single international personality, he stressed.
