    President of the Republic of Cyprus Demetris Christofias has said that he and Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat have reached an understanding that nothing is agreed until everything is agreed in talks to solve the Cyprus problem.

    Speaking on his return to the Presidential Palace after the first meeting in the context of an intensive round of talks to solve the Cyprus problem, President Christofias expressed hope that at the end of the day there would be more convergences between the positions of the two sides.

    ``We exchanged views freely on the various aspects of governance, without any document as a basis,`` he said, adding that they have reached an understanding that ``nothing is agreed or will be agreed unless everything is agreed.``

    President Christofias added that ``there was a discussion which indicates that we will continue the discussion.``

    ``Without being able to go into any details at this moment, we will submit our view in writing, which I have analysed verbally today, and we will continue the discussion,`` he said.

    Replying to questions, President Christofias said it was not Talat who leaked a document containing Turkish proposals to the press, and assured that ``neither Talat nor Christofias will be abandoning the talks.``

    ``Let us hope that at the end of the day we will have more convergences, which is the common aim,`` he added.

    Asked about the climate during the meeting, President Christofias said it was ``good.``

    Cyprus has been divided since 1974, when Turkey invaded and occupied its northern third.

    The leaders of the two communities have been engaged in UN-led direct negotiations since September 2008, with an aim to reunify the island.

    The intensive talks are being held at the residence of the UN Secretary General`s Special Representative in Cyprus Tayie Brook Zerihoun.
