    Clerides: We can still reach a settlement

    Nicosia, Jun 20 (CNA) -- Cyprus President Glafcos Clerides has expressed the belief that the ongoing UN-led peace talks on Cyprus "could produce, even on the eleventh, a negotiated settlement that will lead to a permanent and viable solution of the Cyprus problem based on a bizonal, bicommunal federation and with respect to human rights both of the Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots."

    Receiving here today the credentials of the new Ambassador of the Dominican Republic to Cyprus Manuel Morales Lama, President Clerides said that the Greek Cypriot side expects from the Turkish side to show the necessary will, negotiate sincerely, constructively and with a vision for the future and abandon its intransigent positions and demands, so as to achieve a permanent settlement of the Cyprus problem. He noted that the solution should comply with UN resolutions and be in line with the international law and the EU acquis communautaire.
