  • [01] BRITISH FOREIGN SECRETARY - CYPRUS PROBLEM

    Decisions about the settlement of the Cyprus problem must be taken by the leadership and the people of Cyprus, British Foreign Secretary David Miliband told a press conference on Human Rights.

    Noting that he had already referred in his speech before the House of Commons about the bi-zonal, bi-communal solution and that the role of the UN, is absolutely essential to the Process, Miliband said, responding to a question about the violation of human rights in Cyprus by Turkey, that a settlement has to be made by people locally.

    We can support it, but it is going to have to be done locally by leadership, which is why the immediate meeting on his election of President Christofias and Mr Talat that is important, that leadership is important. But in the end it has to change people`s minds as well because they have to vote for it in a referendum and I think that is where the right balance has got to be struck, Miliband noted.

    [02] HOUSE PRESIDENT - CYPRUS QUESTION

    The House President has described as positive the climate following last weeks meeting between the leaders of the Greek Cypriot and the Turkish Cypriot communities.

    The first meeting between Cyprus President Demetris Christofias and Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat has created a positive climate, House President Marios Karoyian has said, adding however that there is still a long way to go.

    Speaking to students of the Philosophical Schools of the Universities of Athens and Palermo, Karoyian noted that as long as the Turkish establishment dictates its terms on the Turkish Cypriot community, things will be difficult.
