  • [01] CYPRUS TALKS MEETING DOWNER

    The leaders of the two communities in Cyprus, President of the Republic Demetris Christofias and T/c leader Mehmet Ali Talat have discussed the issue of external relations in a meeting they had here on Wednesday, in the framework of the second round of UN-led negotiations, aimed to find a mutually accepted solution to the Cyprus problem.

    Speaking after the meeting, Alexander Downer, Special Adviser of the UN Secretary General on the Cyprus issue, said that the two leaders had a tete-a-tete meeting for about an hour and then they had a discussion on the issue of external relations.

    Tomorrow they will be meeting again at 10 oclock and the leaders will discuss the issue of property, he added.

    Replying to a question, Downer said that the executive issue will be discussed again in the future and when the two leaders decide.

    Asked if Christofias and Talat made progress on the executive, Downer noted that they have been making steady progress.

    Called to answer whether the executive issue will be discussed again in a possible third phase, the give and take phase of the negotiations Downer said that we should take one step at a time.

    At the moment we are going through the second phase, exploring a lot of different options for how to handle the different issues. It is a productive process and a lot of bridging proposals were put forward and they (two leaders) need time to think about these issues and discuss these issues, he concluded.

    Christofias and Talat have been engaged in direct negotiations since September 2008 with a view to solve the problem of Cyprus, divided since 1974, when Turkish troops invaded and occupied 37% of its territory.
