    Egyptian Minister of Foreign Affairs Ahmed Aboul Gheit was received on Thursday in Nicosia by President of the Republic of Cyprus Demetris Christofias, whom he briefed on the situation in the Middle East and listened to his views on the Cyprus problem.

    Speaking after the meeting, the Egyptian Minister said ``it was a very warm meeting,`` and that he conveyed to President Christofias ``the greetings and regards and support from President Mubarak, Egypt and the Egyptian people.``

    ``I briefed him on the situation in the Middle East and the current situation between the Palestinians and the Israelis. I listened to his views on how he intends to pursue establishing understanding with the Turkish Cypriots and to find a way out from the current situation,`` he added.

    Asked what had to be done for a nuclear-free Middle East, the Egyptian Minister said ``we have to have a conference, an international conference, whereby the nuclear powers, as well as the regional countries, would meet and discuss how to establish a zone free of nuclear weapons.``

    ``That is the crux of the Egyptian-Arab-NAM proposal, it is not only an Egyptian proposal, and we are in discussions right now in the UN with the Americans, with the Russians, with the P-five, the permanent members of the Security Council, and hopefully we would agree on terms of reference, on how to agree to establish that conference and when to meet, how to meet, who would be calling for that conference and how to pursue the issue in the immediate future,`` he added.
