    Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs Sergei Lavrov welcomed on Tuesday the steps taken by the Greek Cypriot side towards the implementation of the July 8 agreement, stressing that his country will be active in the efforts to achieve a solution the Cyprus problem, mutually accepted by both Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots.

    Lavrov was speaking after a meeting with his Cypriot counterpart George Lillikas, who said that he requested the Russian Federation`s assistance, as a UN Security Council permanent member, for the implementation of the agreement, which provides for a process of bicommunal discussions on issues that affect the day-to-day life of the people and concurrently those that concern substantive issues, both contributing to a comprehensive settlement of the Cyprus problem.

    In statements after the meeting, Lillikas said that he requested Russia`s assistance in the framework of the Security Council for the implementation of the July 8 agreement, stressing that ``only through the implementation of this agreement could we open new prospects for the solution of the Cyprus problem.``

    According to Lillikas, Russia, due to its permanent seat in the Security Council, the good relations it has with Turkey and the outstanding relations with Cyprus, is in position to have an important role in the solution of the Cyprus problem, particularly after Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat`s letter to the UN Secretary General.

    ``I consider the Security Council as the body which will have the decisive role on the future course of events. Russia`s position, as expressed in public by Mr. Lavrov, is that this agreement should be implemented and that we should remain firm in the UN resolutions regarding the solution of the Cyprus problem,`` Lillikas added.
