  • [01] LEADERS NEW MEETING

    A new meeting between the leaders of the two communities in Cyprus is taking place today in the UN Protected Area of Nicosia in the framework of the direct negotiations, which began last September with a view to reach a solution in Cyprus and reunify the island.

    Presidential Commissioner George Iacovou told CNA Tuesday that the leaders are expected to conclude discussions on the economy and then move forward to the issue of Limnitis, a crossing point, on the northwest, the opening of which would facilitate movement between the islands northern Turkish occupied areas and the southern government controlled part of the country.

    This will be the 31st meeting between President of the Republic Demetris Christofias and Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat.

    Cyprus has been divided since 1974, when Turkey invaded and occupied its northern third. President Christofias and Talat have been engaged in UN-led direct negotiations since September 2008 to reunite the island.

    [02] PRESIDENT CYRPUS TALKS

    President of the Republic of Cyprus Demetris Christofias has stressed that he has made no concessions in the Cyprus problem, pointing out that he has no intention of doing so in the future.

    Any such move, he said, would be harmful for the people of Cyprus and efforts to reach a settlement of the island`s political problem.

    He noted that the Cyprus problem should be solved on a basis acceptable by the Greek Cypriot side too.

    Commenting on remarks by Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat that the Turkish Cypriots should obtain at least 29% of the territory and that they had not agreed on giving back Morphou town, on the northwest, President Christofias said negotiations through the media have never assisted the negotiations themselves.
