Cyprus Problem – Meetings “are going well”

It appears that according to Halkin Sesi newspaper (20.02.14) the initial contacts between the Turkish and Cypriot negotiators “are going well”. Turkish Cypriot negotiator, Kudret Ozersay, met  with the Greek Cypriot negotiator, Andreas Mavroyiannis, and after the meeting Ozersay said the following:

“We left the meeting satisfied. Moreover, as far as we understood, not only the Turkish side, the Greek Cypriot side also left satisfied. This is something positive. I think that it was a good start and I could easily say that we have now started entering into the substance of the issues. Certainly it is possible to reach the following conclusion: There is in general a common understanding between the sides regarding the method of the negotiations. We have started debating the substance of the issues one by one. I could say that there is an agreement on the method connected to the issues from time to time but in general on how the negotiations will be conducted”.

The next meeting was set for Monday, 24 February.
