‘Constructive’ meeting between negotiators

Greek Cypriot negotiator Andreas Mavroyiannis

The two negotiators, Andreas Mavroyiannis and Ozdil Nami have been meeting intensively ahead of the next leaders’ rendezvous on June 17.

The negotiators met on Monday morning at the Ledra Palace hotel and will resume work again on Wednesday.

President Nicos Anastasiades and Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci are expected to enter negotiations on substantive issues during their next meeting.

Foreign Minister Ioannis Kasoulides said last week that issues to be discussed included governance, and aspects of property. After that the leaders would tackle territory and security, he said.

The negotiators have been tasked with listing the points where there are convergences, where there are small gaps and where the gaps are large.

This assessment will be put to the two leaders who will discuss it and give guidance to the negotiators on how to proceed further.

Government spokesman Nicos Christodoulides on Monday told the Cyprus News Agency that Mavroyiannis and Nami had a constructive meeting.

“They are continuing their work within the terms of reference set out by the two leaders in order to assess the state of affairs in view of the [leaders] meeting next week,” he said. “The assessment concerns all chapters under discussion.”
