    President of the European Commission Jose Manuel Barroso has call on both leaders, President Demetris Christofias and Turkish Cypriot leader Dervis Eroglu, to intensify the negotiations so as to ensure a successful outcome of the Geneva meeting and to rapidly take the next steps towards a settlement. They can count on the strong support of the European Commission, he said, noting that all the citizens of Cyprus and the European Union as a whole will benefit from a united Cyprus.

    In a statement ahead of the meeting of UN SG Ban Ki-moon with the leaders of the two communities in Cyprus, Demetris Christofias and Dervis Eroglu, on 7 July in Geneva, Barroso said that more than seven years after Cyprus` accession to the European Union a comprehensive settlement of the Cyprus problem is overdue. A mutually agreed settlement will be the basis for the long expected reunification of the country and end one of the oldest conflicts on European soil, he stressed.

    Barroso pointed out that in order to achieve this goal, a breakthrough in the talks is necessary. I am confident on the political will of the leaders of the two communities in making all the necessary efforts to progress towards a satisfactory final solution, he added.
