Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis met with visiting Cypriot House of Representatives Speaker and Secretary General of the left-wing AKEL party Demetris Christofias on Monday.
After the meeting, which Christofias called 'sincere and productive', the Cypriot official stressed the need for talks to resume regarding the Cyprus issue as well as for the need to make the most of Turkey's EU accession course.
He added that Karamanlis' concern regarding Cypriot developments is well known, since the Greek premier is trying to promote the resumption of talks that will lead to the resolution of the Cyprus issue.
Christofias noted that Karamanlis is hoping for a solution that will be based on a revised version of UN Secretary General Kofi Annan's plan, acceptable to the Cypriot people and meeting the demands of the political community.
