    Downer, who was received Wednesday by President of the Republic of Cyprus Demetris Christofias, said that at the Geneva meeting, Ban Ki moon will want to continue to ensure that the momentum at the Cyprus talks is maintained.

    He said that his meeting with President Christofias focused on working out the program for the next few weeks, saying that the leaders representatives will prepare the work and the leaders will meet to review that work.

    [02] GREEK FM SPOKESMAN - TURKEY - EU

    Turkey must fulfill its obligations towards the Republic of Cyprus to be able to continue its EU accession course, Spokesman of the Greek Foreign Ministry Gregoris Delavekouras has stressed.

    The Greek official said Wednesday that Turkeys EU accession course is faced with a series of problems due to Turkeys denial to fulfill its EU obligations, including its obligation to recognize and normalize its relations with the Republic of Cyprus and implement the Ankara Protocol. He expressed the view that there should be timeframes regarding Ankaras compliance with those commitments.

    He explained that if by June, Turkey does not meet its EU obligations and the ones concerning its member states, then the whole process will freeze.

    According to Delavekouras, one more reason for Turkeys problems in its EU course, is the fact that reforms in the country are taking place at a slow pace and not decisively.

    [03] CYPRUS FM - TIMEFRAMES

    Cyprus Foreign Minister Markos Kyprianou has said that the Greek Cypriot side rejects artificial timeframes, in the current negotiating process to find a political settlement in Cyprus.

    Addressing the Parliamentary Group on Cyprus, at the House of Commons, he said that Turkey now says it wants to impose time limits on the peace process and wondered what might follow after such timeframes.

    Kyprianou presented an overview of the course of the talks and emphasized that the Greek Cypriot side wants - more than anybody else a successful conclusion of the current negotiations.

    To achieve this, he pointed out, Turkey which holds the key to the solution must make a positive contribution.
