2008-04-10 12:19:27

Nicosia, Apr 9 - Cypriot Presidential Commissioner George Iacovou and Ozdil Nami, aide to the Turkish Cypriot leader, today finalized the agenda of another three working groups and technical committees in a 5 hour-long meeting.

After today's meeting, the number of technical committee and working groups, the agenda of which has been agreed, reached eight out of a total of thirteen agreed by the two aides on March 26.

Mr. Iacovou explained that today's meeting took five hours to conclude because the two sides entered into the ''most important issues'' to be covered by the technical committees and working groups.

''We are towards the end and I expect that we will conclude all 13 working groups and technical committees, and (we will finish) perhaps by tomorrow night of Friday,'' he added.

Mr. Iacovou also said that the work agreed between the two aides is on an ad referendum basis, that is, to be given the final approval by the leaders of the two communities, noting that he expects that another technical committee and one more working group will be created in addition to the 13 agreed initially.

Mr. Iacovou and Mr. Nami meet regularly with a view to implement an agreement reached by Cypriot President Demetris Christofias and Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat during their meeting on March 21.
