Partial progress on property chapter
According to some sources close to the negotiations in Mont Pelerin, Switzerland, there has been some progress on the issue of property.
Although some progress has been made, a number of areas of disagreement remain.
President Mustafa Akıncı and Greek Cypriot Leader Nikos Anastasiades will try to reach a settlement on territorial arrangements during the meetings which are to be held today and tomorrow.
Should a consensus be reached on the criteria which are being discussed, the date of five-party meeting – where the Security and Guarantees chapter will be discussed with the participation of the guarantor countries, the UK, Turkey and Greece – will be determined on Friday.
According to some sources, it would be important to agree on the criteria of the property issue, which should then be laid out on a map. Should the date of the five-party meeting not be determined, the three stage agreement – part of the process for the talks in Switzerland – will be collapsed.
