    Neither the Greek Cypriot nor the Turkish Cypriot side is ready to discuss in depth the issue relating to properties, in the context of UN-led peace talks, President Demetris Christofias has said.

    ``We are not yet ready to discuss this issue in depth, the President replied, when asked whether there was an agreement on the criteria on property-related issues.

    Speaking on arrival at the Presidential Palace, after his meeting on Monday with the Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat, Christofias said that the discussion on the issue of properties will continue during his next meeting with Talat on Friday afternoon.

    There is nothing new to report, Christofias told journalists, adding that we discussed some current issues and of course the properties issue in our tete-a-tete meeting.

    He said their advisers would continue the discussion on this issue before Fridays meeting.

    Commenting on Turkish press reports that the Turkish side would put on the negotiating table a roadmap relating to the ongoing talks, President Christofias replied: ``No there is no such issue.

    Christofias and Talat began UN-led talks in September 2008 in a bid to achieve a mutually agreed solution to the problem of Cyprus, divided since 1974 when Turkey invaded and occupied its northern third.

    The two leaders have entered the second phase of the talks for the ``second reading`` of the six chapters of the Cyprus problem, namely, governance and power-sharing, property, EU matters, economic matters, territory and security and guarantees.
