    President of the Republic of Cyprus Demetris Christofias and Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat will meet again Tuesday in the framework of the ongoing UN-led direct negotiations for a solution to the Cyprus problem, during which they will continue their discussion on the chapter of property.

    The meeting will start at 1000 local time (0800 GMT) at the UN Protected Area of the now defunct Nicosia international airport.

    In the last meeting, the UN Secretary General`s Special Adviser on Cyprus Alexander Downer said that every day they are inching along and noted that Friday`s session was a good opportunity to talk through the issues and continue to work through the property chapter.

    Asked if he felt that once the leaders overcome the property issue, things will proceed faster, the UN official said that for every part of the negotiation where there is agreement, the process becomes easier.

    He also pointed out that property is a difficult legal issue and a difficult economic issue. So, it takes time to work through these details, he added.

    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.


    House President Marios Garoyian leaves on Tuesday for Brussels where he will hold contacts with European officials.

    A press release issued by the House of Representatives said that Garoyian will attend a working breakfast with the President of the European Parliament Jerzy Buzek. He will also have separate meetings with the Vice Presidents Stavros Lambrinides and Libor Roucek.

    He will also have separate meetings with the Chair of the EPP-ED group Joseph Daul, the chairman of the Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats in the European Parliament Martin Schulz, Co-President of the Group of the Greens/European Free Alliance Rebecca Harms, leader of the Confederal Group of the European United Left - Nordic Green Left Lothar Bisky, co-chair of Europe of Freedom and Democracy Group Nigel Farage, and Conservative Party Member of the European Parliament Marina Yannakoudakis.


    The advancement of technology must be accompanied by quality journalism, it was stressed Monday in a conference in the southern coastal town of Limassol.

    Participants at the international conference on News Agencies: Concerns and Challenges, hosted by the Cyprus News Agency (CNA), also underlined the advantages and disadvantages of digital media.

    In his intervention, Andreas Christodoulides, Consultant to the President/ Director-General of the Athens News Agency - Macedonian News Agency, in his speech entitled ``Digital Journalism and News Agencies- Still ``Get it first, but first get it right`` said digital media is traditionally new and is competing at an economically critical time. However, the value of news is restricted, he said.

    Monomedia businesses are turning into multimedia, driven by the technological and cultural changes, he added. At the same time, sources have multiplied, with the presence of blogs, Twitter, while the technology has increased with the presence of wireless cameras, mobiles and internet and more, he noted.

    These changes have had consequences in the work of news agencies, said Christodoulides, with the mass increase of cybermediaries and aggregators.
