Nicosia, Feb 14 (CNA) - President of rightwing opposition Democratic Rally (DISY) Nicos Anastasiades will be meeting with Cypriot President Tassos Papadopoulos tomorrow morning to discuss the outcome of the former's visit to Turkey and the views of the party.

Anastasiades said DISY also wanted to brief House of Representatives President Demetris Christofias, Greek Ambassador to Cyprus Christos Panagopoulos and the members of the National Council, at its next meeting, on the results of the party's visit to Turkey at the invitation of ruling Justice and Development Party.

''The experience we gained from the trip to Turkey confirms our position that in the modern environment we are living in we must have positions and pursue our just demands,'' Anastasiades said.

On his talks with Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Anastasiades said they were ''useful'' and took place ''in a constructive atmosphere.''

''Our people want peace, a permanent solution to the Cyprus problem that will satisfy us and will be beneficial for all in the end,'' he said, adding that he explained to his interlocutors that the Greek Cypriot community did not reject a solution to the Cyprus problem during the April 2004 referendum but the specific settlement plan.
