    DISI leader: Our visit to Turkey has been very successful

    by Maria Myles

    Constantinople, Feb 13 (CNA) -- Leader of Greek Cypriot Democratic Rally Party (DISI) Nicos Anastasiades has described his visit to Turkey very successful bearing in mind the goals he had set out before coming here.

    Speaking after a brief conversation of the DISI delegation with Patriarch Bartholomew, the leader of the Greek Orthodox Church, Anastasiades said ''we came here to convey the concerns of the Greek Cypriots and to sound out intentions.''

    ''We return to Cyprus having an overall picture of the situation but also with hope that Turkey's European perspective and the new initiative which we hope will unfold in the coming months will help at long last to create conditions for the reunification of Cyprus,'' he said.

    Cyprus President: We are working discreetly to reach an agreed settlement

    Nicosia, Feb 13 (CNA) -- Cyprus President Tassos Papadopoulos said the Greek Cypriot side has been working systematically and discreetly to create conditions that guarantee substantive and constructive negotiations leading to an agreed settlement of the Cyprus problem, within the new context created by accession of Cyprus to the EU.

    In a speech at a Maronite religious service in Nicosia this morning, Papadopoulos said he remains committed and focused on reaching a solution based on a bizonal, bicommunal federation, a solution that will reunite Cyprus, be functional and viable, and make gradual rapprochement between the Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot communities a reality.
