    The issue of territory was examined on Friday by President of the Republic of Cyprus Demetris Christofias and Turkish Cypriot leader Dervis Eroglu during their one-day meeting, in the framework of the direct talks aiming at finding a solution to the Cyprus problem.

    UN Secretary-Generals Special Advisor Alexander Downer told reporters after todays meeting which lasted more than five hours that it was an opportunity to focus the discussions on the issue of territory. It was agreed, he said, that the issue of maps and figures would be discussed at the very end of the process, so that wasnt the issue today, and the leaders had a good opportunity to exchange views and consider each others positions.

    Downer told reporters that he believes that during this phase it is really important that the leaders ``are able to have discussions in private obviously with us, and the principle of privacy needs properly to be respected here.``

    Otherwise it makes it very difficult to come here with different proposals and to discuss those different proposals, if there is going to be an analysis of them if there is a leaking of them publicly, an evaluation of them day by day by the UN,`` he added. Downer said he can understand it is frustrating not to get that information but always in these types of negotiations it is important to preserve that privacy.
