    Former President of the Republic, George Vassiliou, has donated his personal digital archives, referring to his five-year term in office (1988-1993), to the University of Cyprus.

    The archives include, among others, the full texts of Vassiliou`s talks on the Cyprus problem with the then Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash, under the auspices of the then UN Secretary General Javier FPérez de Cuéllar and his successor Boutros Boutros-Ghali.

    Speaking on Thursday at a ceremony during which he signed an agreement for his donation,with the University of Cyprus Rector, Constantinos Christofides, Vassiliou said that dozens of people, among which several students, worked for almost ten years to set up these digital archives, adding that the whole venture costed several hundred thousand euro.

    Boris Johnson has said that Cyprus is potentially on the verge of some great progress in terms of reaching a negotiated settlement to the long-standing division following the Turkish invasion of 1974 and the subsequent 42-year long illegal occupation of the northern part of the island.

    Summarizing the preconditions set by rating agencies, Georgiades said these are "the prudent public finances management, the continued support to economic recovery, the consolidation of the banking sector and the sustained promotion of the reforms and changes which the economy needs.
