    President of the Republic of Cyprus Demetris Christofias has cautioned UN Secretary Generals Special Adviser on Cyprus Alexander Downer that he is a UN officer and when reference is made to quintet summit, the Republic of Cyprus is an interested party.

    The Cypriot President was invited to comment, after inaugurating a regional elementary and pre-junior schools of Asinou in the Nicosia district, statements by Downer at the illegal Bayrak radio station in the Turkish-occupied northern part of Cyprus.

    Downer was quoted as saying that the issue of guarantees involves three guarantor powers in Cyprus and that this should be discussed at a summit to be attended also by the two sides in Cyprus. However, he noted that guarantor powers Turkey, Greece and Britain have differing views over the issue.

    Mr. Downer must appreciate that he is not the Foreign Minister, he is a UN officer, and whatever we say about a summit, the interested party is the Republic of Cyprus, while the Security Council is made up of five permanent members, President Christofias remarked.

    He said he will have a friendly chat with Downer and urged journalists not to make a big issue out of every statement that is made.

    It is an open dialogue. Various people have differing views, we have differing views and we make them known. I do not make a scene but I will surely not allow anything to go through which might deserve reprehension", he pointed out.

    President Christofias and Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat have been engaged in UN-led direct negotiations since September 2008, with an aim to reunify the island, divided since 1974 when Turkey invaded and occupied the islands northern third.
