    House President Marios Garoyian and Greek Minister of Foreign Affairs Dora Bakoyiannis stressed here today the importance of parliamentary diplomacy in todays international relations and in supporting governmental efforts.

    Speaking after their meeting, Garoyian said he had a very substantial and constructive discussion in a friendly atmosphere with the Greek FM on the current phase of the Cyprus problem as well as on European and bilateral issues.

    We had an overview of the process of the Working Groups and Technical Committees and I have to say that there was a common understanding as regards the objectives and the handling, said Garoyian adding that they also shared concerns over issues of the Cyprus problem.

    There was a common understanding on how important is the parliamentary diplomacy today, in international relations, and how important is the role of the parliamentary diplomacy in supporting the governments efforts, he added.

    Technical Committees and Working Groups were set up a couple of months ago following an agreement between the two community leaders, in an effort to rekindle interest in the stalled Cyprus peace talks and help resume direct negotiations.

    Cyprus has been divided since 1974, when Turkey invaded and occupied its northern third.
