  • [01] PRESIDENT - CYPRUS TALKS

    President of the Republic of Cyprus Demetris Christofias said on Wednesday that ``the President of the Republic, who is the negotiator, defends principles and defends the country,`` adding that there was ``no possibility of signing an intermediate agreement or any ready plan to be presented to the people of Cyprus.``

    Addressing the Nicosia General Hospital staff during an on site visit, President Christofias assured he would struggle for a qualitative solution, which should be functional, viable and based on principles.

    He added that if the Turkish Cypriot side presented ``more reasonable positions, more acceptable positions, that would lead to a solution for a true federation with a single sovereignty, a single citizenship and a single international identity, we could surely reach a solution soon and this is our aim.``

    President Christofias pointed out that there were ``important aspects`` of the Cyprus problem that would be discussed after the forthcoming so-called elections in the Turkish occupied areas.

    At the Nicosia General Hospital, President Christofias visited wards and spoke with patients and members of the staff.

    [02] BRITAIN - CONFIDENTIAL PAPERS - CYPRUS

    British Government confidential papers of 1979 publicised on Wednesday according to the 30-year rule, said that the outcome of the meeting between Cyprus President Kyprianou and the Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash under the chairmanship of the UN SecretaryGeneral Dr Waldheim on 1819 May 1979, was a great deal, better than generally expected.

    A document of the British High Commission in Nicosia pointed out that both leaders showed a high degree of flexibility. President Kyprianou was said to be the more ready to try to find compromises although the Turkish Cypriot side seemed to have made the more significant concessions. The same document refers to major differences still remaining between the two sides with the danger of the accord being undermined before the inter-communal talks even resume on the 15 of June.
