President of the Republic Demetris Christofias shows “an absolutely positive stance and will” in the direct talks, however the Turkish side is intransigent and appears not willing to cooperate in order to reach a just and viable solution to the Cyprus problem, FM Marcos Kyprianou has told his French counterpart Alain Juppe, with whom he met Wednesday in Paris.

According to an official announcement, Kyprianou briefed his counterpart on the Cyprus issue, in view of Thursday’s meeting between UNSG Ban Ki Moon, President of the Republic Demetris Christofias and Turkish Cypriot leader Dervis Eroglu in Geneva.

The Cypriot FM expressed his gratitude for France’s firm support towards the Cyprus issue, which is based on international laws and the UN Chart.
