MOSCOW, February 11. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s Foreign Ministry has called not to impose any timeframes or settlement formulas on the participants of the inter-community negotiations in Cyprus. The decision to resume such talks under the United Nations auspices was taken at a meeting between President of Cyprus Nikos Anastasiadis and Turkish Cypriot leader Dervis Erogly in Nicosia.
“We hope that in the forthcoming dialogue both sides will be geared towards a comprehensive, fair and viable solution to the Cypriot problem on the basis of relevant resolutions of the United Nations Security Council and intra-Cypriot top-level agreements of 1977 and 1979,” Russian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said on Tuesday. “We think it necessary to ensure favourable external conditions for talks, which, we believe, must be free from any pressure from outside and attempts to impose timeframes or settlement formulas.”
For these ends, Moscow is ready to cooperate with its partners in the United Nations Security Council and with other parties concerned. “We are confident that a really lasting settlement in Cyprus is possible only condition of accord between Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots,” Lukashevich stressed.
