Paris talks on Cyprus issue

"We are moving towards a viable resolution of the Cyprus problem," writes the Greek daily. According to the Greek minister for foreign affairs, Dora Bakoyannis, "the financial aid for the Turkish Cypriot part of the island approved by the European foreign ministers yesterday in Brussels marks a step on the road to Europeanisation for the Turkish sector, and provides a fresh basis for negotiations." The EU aid, in the amount of 139 million euros, is aimed at breaking the isolation of the Turkish part [of the island]. Today is D Day for Bakoyannis, who plans to follow, from Brussels, the meeting in Paris between the Greek Cypriot president, Tassos Papadopoulos and the UN secretary-general, Kofi Annan. This meeting is instrumental to the progress of the negotiations, even if the idea of a confederation of two zones and two communities [contained in the UN reunification plan proposed in 2004] no longer seems to be suitable."
