Nicosia, Apr 9 (CNA) No discussion, within the wider framework of discussions on Cyprus, can affect the UN procedures regarding a solution to the problem, said here Wednesday Government Spokesman Kypros Chrisostomides.

He was commenting on a statement by Turkish Prime Minister, Recep Tayyip Erdogan that if Greece and Turkey agree on something with regard to Cyprus, this would bind both Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots.

Let me remind two previous statements by Mr. (Costas) Simitis, (Greek Prime Minister) that the question of Cyprus is an international issue and should remain within the UN framework. It is not a bilateral issue”, he added.|

He said the Greek Premier had rejected a previous proposal by the Turkish side for a five-party conference on Cyprus.
