    [02] President committed to September 2009 statement

    President Demetris Christofias remains committed to a joint statement on the question of Cyprus, approved by the parliamentary parties in September 2009, Government Spokesman Stephanos Stephanou has said.

    The National Council, the top advisory body to the President on the handling of the Cyprus problem, concluded on Wednesday four all-day sessions during which it discussed all issues relating to the course of the ongoing talks for a political settlement, without consensus on the way forward.

    ``The President listened carefully to the positions of all the members of the Council,`` Stephanou said in statements after the day-long session.

    He added that ``during the meeting the President reaffirmed his commitment to the joint statement issued after the National Council meeting of 18 September 2009 and pointed out that his proposals and handling of the Cyprus problem are in line with the September statement.``

    The National Council on 18 September 2009 reaffirmed its insistence on finding a peaceful settlement of the Cyprus problem on the basis of UN resolutions on Cyprus and the high level agreements of 1977 and 1979 which provide for a bizonal, bicommunal federation, with political equality, as set out by UN Security Council resolutions, stressing that the settlement must achieve the unity of the territory, the people, the institutions and the economy.
