President Nicos Anastasiades said on Friday that Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci had raised the issue of leaks from the Greek Cypriot side relating to the ongoing negotiations.
Anastasiades, on his return to the presidential palace after the talks, said he had told Akinci it was a matter for the Greek Cypriot side to deal with.
Pressed to comment further, he said it was a matter he did not wish to further address at the moment.
He was referring to EDEK leader Marinos Sizopoulos who publicised excerpts from minutes of a National Council meeting on Wednesday.
As for the negotiations, Anastasiades said the meeting with Akinci had been positive and constructive.
“I think it was a very productive and creative meeting. We have decided that the understandings [we reached] should be gradually transformed into convergences and we will certainly continue the talks in the same intensive way in order to achieve what will meet the expectations of both communities,” the president said.
Asked which chapters were discussed, he added: “We have covered a host of issues relating to the topics under discussion.”
Anastasiades was also asked about the Turkey-EU deal and repeated that what Anakra needed to do was fulfill its obligations.
