The National Unity Party leader was speaking following a meeting hosted by President Mustafa Akıncı, which was also attended by the heads of other political parties represented in Parliament.

Mr Akıncı briefed them on the outcome of his “informal” meeting in Berlin on November 25 with Greek Cypriot leader Nicos Anastasiades and UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres.

The President has also organised a series of briefing sessions for mayors, muhtars, political parties not represented in Parliament and non-governmental organisations over a period of three days, the last of which was due to take place today.

The island’s two leaders “reaffirmed” their commitment at last month’s gathering in Germany to a solution to the Cyprus problem based on a “bi-zonal, bi-communal federation”, Mr Guterres had said in a statement after the meeting.
