  • [01] Alt.FM confers with UN envoy

    ANA-MPA/Alternate foreign minister Dimitris Droutsas met on Friday with the UN secretary general's special advisor on the Cyprus issue Alexander Downer, with whom he discussed the ongoing UN-mediated negotiations for a Cyprus solution.

    During the 90-minute meeting, which was held in the context of the regular meetings and systematic cooperation between the Greek side and the UN representative, Downer made a detailed presentation of the current state of the talks and the positions of the two sides on Cyprus, as well as on the prospects of the negotiation, foreign ministry spokesman Grigoris Delavekouras told a press briefing.ANA-MPA

    The two sides also discussed the next steps and the package of proposals submitted recently by Cyprus President Demetris Christofias aiming at giving new momentum to the negotiation process.

    Speaking to reporters after the meeting, Downer stressed the importance of maintaining contact with the governments of the three guarantor powers -- Greece, Britain and Turkey -- and said that the UN has been very close to the Greek position throughout the negotiation process, and described Christofias' idea for an international conference as "very interesting", but added, however, that the matter has not yet been discussed with UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and that it would help if progress on the domestic aspects of the issue, such as that of properties, has been achieved before convening such a conference.
