  • [01] LEADERS - NEW MEETING

    President of the Republic of Cyprus Demetris Christofias and Turkish Cypriot leader Dervis Eroglu will be meeting again on Monday, in the framework of UN-led direct negotiations to reach a solution of the Cyprus problem.

    Speaking after the last meeting on November 1, the UN Secretary General`s Special Adviser on Cyprus Alexander Downer had said that the leaders had decided to set up a new committee to look into the opening of new crossing points between the Turkish occupied areas and the government controlled areas of the Republic fairly soon.

    Monday`s meeting is expected to take place at the official residence of UNFICYP Chief of Mission in the United Nations Protected Area (UNPA) Lisa Buttenheim and is scheduled to begin at 15:00 local time (13:00 GMT).

    The meeting is taking place in the light of an announcement that on November 18 the leaders of the two communities will be holding a joint meeting with UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon in New York.

    [02] GAROYIAN - CYPRUS ISSUE

    The meeting of the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon with Cyprus President Demetris Christofias and Turkish Cypriot leader Dervis Eroglu in New York on November 18 should not change the mandate of the UN Good Offices Mission on Cyprus, House President Marios Garoyian has said.

    Addressing a ceremony for the unveiling of a monument for the sacrifice of the EOKA 1955-1959 heroes Georgios Stylianou, Vasos Panayi and Georgios Anastasiou in Neo Horio, Paphos, Garoyian reaffirmed the Greek Cypriot side`s insistence on just, functional and viable solution to the Cyprus problem.

    ``A fair, functional and viable solution, based on the principles of the international law and the UN resolutions, as well as the values and the principles on which the European Union is founded on,`` he said.

    Garoyian referred to the ongoing UN-led talks for a Cyprus settlement noting that these ``have led nowhere.``
