    President of the Republic of Cyprus Demetris Christofias said on Tuesday that the Greek Cypriot side was being patient towards the dogmatic positions of Ankara, repeated by Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat, on the Cyprus problem.

    He added that such remarks to not contribute towards creating the necessary atmosphere for the successful outcome of work undertaken by the working groups and technical committees, which have been set up to deal with various aspects of the Cyprus problem.

    Asked about his expectations regarding the working groups and technical committees, Christofias said their work had just begun and pointed out that Turkish remarks did not facilitate that work.

    ``We will support principles for a just and viable solution of the Cyprus problem,`` he said and pointed out that an agreement should be based on ``the high level agreements, the agreements reached, the UN resolutions and international law.``

    President Christofias said, although he could not predict anything, he was optimistic and hoped Talat would work in the same way so that ``this optimism is real and bears fruit.``
