    Greek Minister of Foreign Affairs underlined on Wednesday his country`s support to the three-point package submitted by Cyprus President Demetris Christofias aiming at expediting the ongoing UN-led negotiations for the solution of the Cyprus problem.

    Droutsas who is visiting Cyprus, in his first trip abroad after his appointment Tuesday as the new chief of the Greek diplomacy, met Wednesday with his Cypriot counterpart Marcos Kyprianou.

    The current phase of the negotiations for a settlement to the Cyprus problem was the top item in the meeting`s agenda.

    ``The solution we desire and should pursue must be based on the European Union`s principles and values with full respect to the EU acquis communautaire,`` Droutsas said in a joint press conference with Kyprianou, who praised Greece`s support both to the efforts for a Cyprus settlement as well as Greece`s contribution to the island`s EU accession course.

    On his part, Kyprianou said he considers Droutsas` visit to Cyprus under his new capacity as ``very important, encouraging and honorary.``

    Referring to the Cyprus problem, Kyprianou reiterated the government`s commitment to the efforts for the achievement of an agreed solution on the basis of a bi-communal, bi-zonal federation with one nationality, one sovereignty, one international personality and the relevant UN resolutions.

    ``And this we will try through the negotiations to achieve but there should be a response by the other side,`` Kyprianou added, pointing out Turkey`s role in achieving progress.

    ``Turkey is not a mere spectator, an observer in the issues of the Cyprus problem, it is the creator of the problem and it is obliged to contribute to the solution of this problem,`` he added, pointing out that Turkey has a decisive role and say on the issues currently being discussed in the UN-led negotiations, mainly the chapter of property, while the chapter of territory and the issue of the Turkish illegal settles are pending, as well as the chapter of security.
