    President of the Republic of Cyprus Demetris Christofias said Tuesday that an open dialogue is taking place at the meeting of the National Council, the top advisory body to the President for the handling of the Cyprus problem.

    The National Council, which is composed of two members from all parliamentary parties, entered Tuesday its second day of session to continue discussion on the latest developments of the Cyprus problem and the prospects for a settlement. Discussion will resume Wednesday and Thursday.

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

    Replying to questions after the conclusions of Tuesdays meeting, President Christofias said that an open dialogue is taking place, adding that the climate is good.

    There is an open dialogue, we will continue the dialogue and I am at the disposal of the members of the National Council. I have my views, I also have the mandate of the people to govern and handle the Cyprus problem. We should bear this in mind as well, he pointed out.

    The President expressed his readiness for a constructive dialogue in the framework of the National Council.

    I am more than ready for a constructive dialogue, President Christofias stressed.

    Asked whether a meeting was set between him and the new Turkish Cypriot leader, he replied not yet.

    On Monday, the Democratic Party (DIKO), the Movement of Social Democrats EDEK, the European Party (EVROKO) and the Cyprus Greens, presented their views and positions on the latest developments in the Cyprus issue.

    On Tuesday, the left wing ruling party AKEL, and the right wing opposition party Democratic Rally (DISY), presented their positions.

    On Wednesday, the Attorney-General will inform members on the recent decision of the European Court of Human Rights on the so-called property commission in the Turkish occupied north of Cyprus.

    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``.


    Cypriot Kyriakos Karatzis is the athlete leading the race so far at the Laser Masters European Championship 2010, which takes place in the coastal town of Limasol.

    Around 64 athletes from 21 countries participate in the European Championship, which will be concluded Friday.

    According to an announcement by the Cyprus Yachting Association, Karatzis is followed by German athlete Gerz and Argentinian Palombo.

    Cypriot Elena Papazoglou leads the race in women, followed by Finish Gustafsson and British Hotchin.
