    President of the House of Representatives Marios Garoyian said on Sunday the Turkish attitude allowed no optimism for the course of the UN-led talks for a mutually agreed solution to the Cyprus problem.

    Speaking at a gathering in the context of Morphou anti-occupation events, Garoyian accused the Turkish side of promoting a two-state solution for the Cyprus problem and submitting proposals that revealed the lack of will for a just, functional and viable solution in Cyprus, divided since the 1974 Turkish invasion, which resulted in the occupation of 37 per cent of the island`s territory.

    ``With its proposals and its broader stance, Turkey undermines the process of the direct talks,`` Garoyian said, adding that if the international community does not exert influence over Turkey ``they will be credited with one more failure for the solution of the Cyprus problem.``

    Garoyian made clear that the solution of the Cyprus problem would be a compromise, pointing out however that this compromise should be mutual and just. ``We must stress at the same time in every direction that our good will, as well as our patience, have limits. When our good will and intentions for a reasonable and fair compromise are met with no response, we will change tactics,`` he said, noting that ``it is time for a new strategy that will put Turkey on the stand.``
