The Cyprus problem was mentioned today, among others, by the President of the Republic, Mr. Nikos Christodoulidis, in his statements to the media, attending the Annual General Meeting of the Association of Major Developments, in Nicosia.

Asked if the Prime Minister of Greece has conveyed to him anything that creates the image of mobility for the prospect of realizing a tripartite, the President of the Republic said that "I spoke with the Greek Prime Minister, the Minister of Foreign Affairs spoke with Mr. Gerapetritis and I also spoke with Ms. Holgin when he was in Athens. The effort continues, the response from our side is positive, as I mentioned above the effort continues, to give time to diplomacy, we are here and we really hope that the conditions will be created so that a discussion, a dialogue to see if there are the conditions for the resumption of talks. I don't want to say anything else at this time, it's not right, since there is an effort going on."

When asked if there was a proposal for a five-party meeting and he rejected it, the President of the Republic said that "I have not rejected any proposal of the personal envoy".

Asked to say whether he can, due to the attitude of any side, prevent the UN Secretary-General from renewing Ms. Holgin's contract, in light of Tatar's statements, the President of the Republic said that "that is up to the Secretary-General. I discussed it with him, not with Ms Holguin, when we met in Brussels. Let's see how the whole situation will develop. I do not want to comment on Mr. Tatar's reports against Ms. Holgin. I repeat, when you have confidence in your positions, in the context in which you move, then there is no need for such reports. In any case, there is an effort underway, I don't want to say anything that might create any problems."
