  • [01] NATIONAL COUNCIL - MEETING

    The National Council, top advisory body to the President of Cyprus regarding the Cyprus question, deems as positive the agreement reached last Saturday between the leaders of the two communities in Cyprus, in the presence of UN Undersecretary General for political affairs Ibrahim Gambari.

    The National Council, which convened under President Tassos Papadopoulos, assessed the latest developments in the Cyprus issue, reaffirming its political will to contribute to the effective implementation of the agreement, Government Spokesman Christodoulos Pashiardis said after the four-hour meeting of the Council.

    He added that President Papadopoulos briefed the members of the Council on his meeting with Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat for the missing persons issue, on the talks he held with Gambari, on the common meeting with Talat in the presence of Gambari, as well as on his trip to Athens, where he held meetings with Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis, President of the Hellenic Republic Karolos Papoulias and the leaders of the political parties in Greece.

    In a statement after the National Council meeting, Pashiardis said that President Papadopoulos informed the Council about the issues concerning Cyprus in the European Union and the Euro-Turkish relations, and expressed his views regarding the developments and the prospects of the Cyprus problem.

    ``The members of the National Council deem that the common meeting with Talat and the agreement reached constitute a positive step, which we hope will lead to substantive negotiations for a solution of the Cyprus problem," Pashiardis said, adding that the Council ``reaffirmed the political will of the Greek Cypriot side to contribute to the effective implementation of the agreement."

    Pashiardis said that the members of the National Council expressed their views and projections regarding developments in the Cyprus issue, and exchanged views on the further handling of the Cyprus problem.

    Asked whether the members of the Council exchanged views as to the prospects of implementing the agreement, Pashiardis said ``they expressed the common position of our side that we will do our utmost so that the agreement is effective."

    "Our side would like to see the agreement being implemented with the goal to pave the way for substantive negotiations leading to a mutually agreed solution of the Cyprus problem," he pointed out.
