    Archbishop of Cyprus Chrysostomos II has called on the UN Secretary General`s Special Adviser in Cyprus Alexander Downer to respect the principles of the UN and stop promoting Turkish positions.

    He furthermore called on President of the Republic of Cyprus Demetris Christofias to request the removal of Downer from his position if the later ``maintains his detrimental, for our side, stance.``

    Addressing the opening ceremony of the 23rd meeting of the Central Council of overseas Cypriot organisations POMAK and PSEKA, and the 5th congress of overseas Cypriot youth organisation NEPOMAK, the Archbishop called for unity of the political leadership in Cyprus and the promotion of positions to tackle Turkish aims, adding that Turkey would withdraw its intransigent positions only if it pays the price in its EU accession negotiations.

    The Archbishop expressed fear that ``we have already crossed the safety line and we have become trapped in a countdown concerning our historical existence in the land of our fathers,`` adding that Turkey has been following a policy of no concessions, while the Greek Cypriot side has been generous, in the hope to reach a settlement.
