Leaders not ready to discuss property

GREEK and Turkish Cypriot leaders are not yet ready to discuss property -- perhaps the thorniest issue of the Cyprus problem - in depth, President Demetris Christofias said yesterday.

The two sides are discussing the criteria regarding the resolution of the property issue, which has probably become the most difficult aspect of the Cyprus problem.

It is understood that the two sides are discussing who would have the first say on what happens with private property: the rightful owner or the current occupant.

Asked yesterday if it was to assume that there was no agreement on the criteria, Christofias said: “Without assumptions. We are not ready yet to discuss the issue in depth.”

Christofias and Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat yesterday met for around two hours.

Their representatives are scheduled to meet on Thursday – to discuss property -- before Christofias and Talat meet again Friday.

“Our advisers remain authorised to continue the discussion they started in the first meeting and we will meet on Friday afternoon,” Christofias said.

United Nations special envoy Alexander Downer said the two representatives George Iakovou and Ozdil Nami will continue their work.

“As I have explained before, this is a comprehensive and difficult issue and they simply continue the work on property,” Downer said.

He said the Iakovou and Nami are working on the criteria.

“This is the substance of the talks and this is what the representatives will discuss on Thursday,” Downer said.

He added that the aim was for them to achieve more convergence.

The two leaders have also planned further meetings inside December though a detailed schedule was not given yesterday.
