Prime Minister Costas Simitis yesterday said he wished that UN-sponsored direct talks between Cyprus President Glafcos Clerides and Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash would advance.
The direct talks are being held outside New York City, in the hamlet Troutbeck.
Mr. Simitis said he wished that the talks would lead to a just and viable solution to the 23-year-old Cyprus problem based on UN resolutions.
