  • [01] CYPRUS PRESIDENT - BRITISH PM - TELEPHONE CONVERSATION

    Cyprus President Demetris Christofias briefed British Prime Minister David Cameron on his package of measures based on three proposals, with regard to the Cyprus problem, over a telephone conversation they had on Sunday.

    According to an official press release, Cameron called Christofias on Sunday and asked to be informed on the course of Cyprus negotiations on the basis of the Memorandum of Understanding between the Republic of Cyprus and the Great Britain, which provides for a dialogue and pre-consultations on issues of common interest.

    Cyprus President extensively briefed Cameron on the situation in the negotiations, which is not encouraging, as he said, due to the completely different positions of the two sides on the property issue, the press release said.

    In addition, President Christofias briefed Cameron on his proposal for a parallel discussion of three negotiating chapters, namely of property, of territorial adjustments and of immigration, nationality, aliens and asylum, with a view to speed up the talks and to facilitate the solution of the property issue.

    Christofias also briefed Cameron on the other two proposals, included in the package he proposed.

    Cyprus President has called on Turkey to implement the UN Security Council resolution 550 of 1984, which provides for the return of the city of Famagusta to the UN, with the simultaneous opening of the Famagusta port under the EU for Turkish Cypriot trade. The third proposal announced by President concerns the international conference on the Cyprus issue, to discuss the international aspect of the problem, which should be called only when an agreement has been reached on the internal aspects.

    According to the press release, the British Prime Minister showed understanding to President Christofias analysis.

    Christofias and Cameron expressed their common will to have a meeting in the near future, in London, in order to continue their discussion.

    Finally, Cameron thanked President Christofias for the briefing and assured him that he will convey his views to the leadership of Turkey.

    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.

    [02] SPOKESMAN - CYPRUS ISSUE - UNITY

    Government Spokesman Stephanos Stephanou reiterated on Sunday the need for unity on the domestic front with a view to support Cyprus President Demetris Christofias` efforts for a settlement of the Cyprus problem.

    He also stressed that the Turkish side must respond positively to efforts for a Cyprus settlement and assured that the Greek Cypriot side will continue to struggle for a viable and functional settlement providing for a bizonal, bicommunal federation.
