Cyprus talks at last meeting of second round talks

Turkish Cypriot president said on Tuesday that problems were faced in intensified talks as the leaders had not started from a certain reference point while discussing the solution of the Cyprus problem.

Delivering a statement following his meeting with Greek Cypriot leader Demetris Christofias under the second round of intensified talks in the island, President Mehmet Ali Talat of Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC) said "Management and Share of Power" issue was on the agenda of today's gathering and nothing new was discussed.

Noting that they would continue to assess the same issues tomorrow, Talat said getting a positive result from the intensified talks would facilitate the upcoming process in Cyprus.

"We are currently facing problems rising from the fact that we have not started from a reference point regarding the solution of the problem," said Talat, adding that there would have been a faster progress in the island if the parties had taken the Annan Plan as a starting point.

Upon a question on UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon's expected visit to Cyprus, Talat said the UN head would first hold separate talks and attend separate banquets with the Cypriot leaders and they would all get together at a joint meeting afterwards.

Talat and Christofias will meet on Wednesday to hold the last meeting of the second round of intensified talks in Cyprus.
