  • [01] NATIONAL COUNCIL - MEETING

    The National Council, the top advisory body to the President on the Cyprus problem, met Monday to discuss the Cyprus issue.

    The Council will meet again Tuesday and Wednesday.

    During its three-day meeting, the members of the National Council will hold a broad discussion on the latest developments of the Cyprus problem and the prospects for a settlement.

    The new National Council meeting comes in the wake of the ``election`` of Dervis Eroglu as the new leader of the Turkish Cypriot community.

    Government Spokesman Stephanos Stephanou, in statements one day after the ``presidential elections`` in the Turkish occupied areas of Cyprus, spoke of a ``bad development.``

    ``Taking into consideration Eroglus declared positions against a federation and for the establishment of two independent states in Cyprus, this could cause very serious problems to the Cyprus negotiations,`` Stephanou added.

    President Christofias and former Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat began on September 2008 UN-led talks for a mutually agreed settlement to the problem of Cyprus, divided since 1974 when Turkey invaded and occupied its northern third. The process was interrupted on March 30 ahead of the so-called ``elections.``

    In the press release it is noted that the meeting with the Cypriot Minister is the first official meeting to take place after the assumption of Fedir Yaroshenkos duties.
