Archbishop: talks going through a difficult phase

The talks between the leaders of the two communities in Cyprus are not deadlocked, but are going through a difficult phase, Archbishop Chrysostomos said on Sunday.

Chrysostomos expressed the view that from now on the talks would proceed at a snail’s pace as the leaders are discussing the more thorny issues. It will be very difficult, he said to get to the end of the negotiations to reach a settlement if Turkey does not retreat from its intransigent positions.

The Turks, the Archbishop added, must understand that the Cyprus problem will have to be solved in a way that will serve both communities and not just one side.
“If this is not understood by Ankara, or by the Turkish-occupied areas I do not think we will reach a solution,” he said.
