  • [01] DOWNER - CRISTOFIAS - CYPRUS ISSUE

    The solution of the Cyprus problem is in the hand of the leaders and the people of Cyprus, Special Adviser of the UN Secretary General on Cyprus, Alexander Downer has said noting that they have to make some tough decisions about the future of the whole island.

    Speaking here Monday, after a meeting he had with the President of the Republic of Cyprus Demetris Christofias, Downer referred to the next direct meeting between the two leaders, which will take place on Wednesday at 10 oclock in the morning.

    This is a meeting coming out of the Geneva meeting with the Secretary General, he said, noting that a lot of procedural work will be done during that meeting, on the way forward and as a result of the Geneva meeting.

    Asked if the Geneva meeting was what he expected and if he is still optimistic about the negotiations, Downer said that it is in the hand of the leaders and the people of Cyprus and they have got to make some tough decisions about the future of the whole island. And the UN does what it can to help the process but we cant force anybody to do what they dont want to do. Ultimately, people in Cyprus have to make their own decisions and express their own views as they wish to do so, he added.

    Replying to a question whether the Turkish Cypriots can freely express themselves, bearing in mind the reaction of the Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan on the demonstrations that are taking place in the occupied part of Cyprus, Downer said that the Turkish Cypriots do really want a solution of the Cyprus problem.
