    BURGENSTOCK (ANA - A. Panagopoulos)The Greek government on Wednesday made it clear that the chances of an agreed solution to the Cyprus problem were becoming increasingly slim.

    In statements at the Swiss Alpine resort of Burgenstock near Lake Lucerne where the talks are taking place, Greek government spokesman Theodoros Roussopoulos stressed that ''the margins for finding an agreed solution at this time are not great''.

    Greek Foreign Minister Petros Molyviatis has briefed President of the Republic Kostis Stephanopoulos, the political party leaders and former premiers Costas Simitis and Constantine Mitsotakis on the latest developments and has met with ''general consensus,'' according to Greek diplomatic sources.
