Christofias: Measures on common ground to be announced

Cypriot President Demetris Christofias has said that he expects measures to be announced soon on topics on which there is common ground at the bicommunal technical committees, set up to prepare the ground for substantive negotiations between the leaders of the two communities in Cyprus.

Speaking after a meeting he held with the heads of the technical committees, President Christofias said it was a very constructive meeting and hopefully, soon ''we will be in the position to announce some measures''. He noted that the advisors of the two leaders are meeting to discuss topics on which there is common ground at the technical committees.

Invited to comment on recent statements by Turkish Foreign Minister Ali Babacan that there are common elements between the leaders' statement of May 23 and an announcement of the Turkish National Security Council for a Cyprus solution based on two states, President Christofias said the two statements have nothing in common.

''I can not accept the wording 'new partnership''', the President stressed. He added that intense negotiations for a Cyprus solution will be held at some stage, and underlined that the Greek Cypriot side will defend its principles and positions. He further said that the basis of the bizonal, bicommunal federation is one state with one sovereignty, one nationality and one international personality.

Cyprus has been divided since 1974, when Turkey invaded and occupied its northern third. Technical committees and working groups, set up after the March 21st Agreement between the two leaders are meeting in order to prepare the ground for full - fledged negotiations.

President Christofias and Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat met May 23 and reviewed the work achieved at the bicommunal committees and teams.
