    [02] House President - Cyprus problem

    Nicosia, Aug 26 (CNA) -- Cyprus House President Demetris Christofias has called on mediators in the Cyprus question to prevent the possibility of Cyprus facing blackmailing dilemmas, in view of its accession to the European Union.

    Speaking during a gathering commemorating the fall to the advancing Turkish troops, that invaded the island in 1974, of the village Aheritou, at the eastern part of the island, Christofias also said that UN-led talks on the Cyprus problem should be conducted on the basis of relevant UN resolutions and High Level Agreements of 1977 and 1979 providing for a bizonal, bicommunal federation, because otherwise they would not be substantive and they would bear no fruit.
