    [05] Government Spokesman - Talks

    by Myria Antoniadou Geneva, Aug 4 (CNA) - Government Spokesman, Michalis Papapetrou, said today that it was not possible to break the deadlock in this phase of the UN-led proximity talks on the Cyprus problem, due to the insistence of the Turkish side on its unacceptable positions, but expressed hope that the Turkish side would shift its stance until the fourth round of talks in September and urged the international community to work in this direction.

    Papapetrou announced that in the time until the September talks, which will take place in New York, the Cyprus and Greek governments, as well as the political parties, would initiate a campaign toward this goal.

    Commenting on positions expressed earlier by the UN chief's Special Adviser on Cyprus, Alvaro de Soto, who is conducting the talks, that all issues are under discussion according to UN Resolution 1250, Papapetrou said one could not refer to only some points of the resolutions, which also provide for a federation solution, as opposed to the confederation settlement aimed at by Denktash.

    by Myria Antoniadou Geneva, Aug 4 (CNA) - Government Spokesman, Michalis Papapetrou, said today that positions expressed by Turkish Foreign Minister, Ismail Cem, in an interview with an Italian newspaper, aimed at pushing the Greek Cypriot side to abandon the talks.

    Papapetrou said that the Greek Cypriot side does not express "extreme positions, but ones that have been adopted by the whole of humanity".

    by Myria Antoniadou Geneva, Aug 4 (CNA) - A UN envoy conducting proximity talks with the Greek and Turkish Cypriot sides in Geneva over the past two weeks has said Security Council resolutions on Cyprus are being given full consideration, but noted that the two sides can raise any issue they wish at the Cyprus peace talks.

    Wrapping up the meetings, the UN Secretary General's Special Adviser on Cyprus, Alvaro de Soto, said he has not given the two sides any ideas to consider until the talks resume in New York on September 12, but underlined one should not be discouraged as the process underway is on-going and aims at a comprehensive settlement.
