    President Demetris Christofias and Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat discussed on Friday the security issue relating to guarantees, during their 37th meeting, in the framework of the UN-led direct negotiating process, aiming at finding a solution to the Cyprus problem.

    In statements after the meeting, the UN Secretary Generals Special Advisor on Cyprus Alexander Downer said that two leaders predominantly discussed the security issue in the plenary session with the United Nations presence.

    He noted that at one point they had a brief tete-a-tete meeting that lasted for about 5-10 minutes.

    Downer announced that next week, the leaders will continue to discuss security and they will also discuss under the first reading governance and power sharing, adding that in the context of governance and power sharing they will discuss aliens, immigration, asylum and citizenship.

    He also said that the leaders had at the end of the discussion today a brief discussion just to review the mechanics of the Limnitis agreement, the opening of the Limnitis crossing.

    The top UN envoy on Cyprus pointed out that the European Union is now ready to fund the preliminary study for the construction of the entire portion of the road inside and outside the buffer zone.

    He said it has been agreed that funding for the preliminary study will proceed, noting this has to be done to make an assessment of the cost of the construction.

    On the departure of the two leaders, Talat handed to President Christofias a cluster of olive branches, which read the word peace on behalf of a Turkish youth group in the Turkish occupied areas.
