  • [03] EAC - NATURAL GAS


    President of the Republic of Cyprus Demetris Christofias has said that during his meeting on Wednesday with Turkish Cypriot leader Dervis Eroglu they discussed the property issue, in the framework of the UN led direct talks for a solution of the Cyprus problem.

    We outlined our positions on the property issue and the Turkish Cypriot side also presented its positions on the matter. We will continue the discussion, the Cypriot President told reporters after the meeting, on his return to the Presidential Palace.

    Cyprus has been divided since 1974, when Turkish troops invaded and occupied 37% of its territory. Peace talks began in September 2008 between President Christofias and former Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat, who was replaced by Eroglu in April this year.


    The property issue was examined to some substance during Wednesdays meeting between the leaders of the two communities in Cyprus, in the framework of UN-led direct negotiations aiming at a political settlement, UN Secretary General`s Special Adviser on Cyprus Alexander Downer said after the meeting.

    Cyprus President Demetris Christofias and Turkish Cypriot leader Dervis Eroglu met for nearly two and a half hours and had, according to Downer, a frank and friendly discussion about the property issue. They discussed the property issue to some substance.

    Replying to questions, Downer said the talks are not losing their momentum, adding that today was an illustration of the point he made yesterday that we like to see momentum in the talks, the leaders have had a substantial discussion on the issue of property and this is the way the process should work, so we are happy with that.

    The next meeting of the two leaders will be held on 9th July while their representatives will have a further meeting fairly soon, according to Downer, to follow up on the substantial discussion that was held today.
