Presidents unable to agree on property issues and derogation

President Nicos Anastasiades and President Mustafa Akinci have not been able to come to an agreement on issues which had been made public prior to their meeting yesterday evening.

Unable to iron out the thorny issues such as governance and properties, in a last-ditch effort to try and find a solution, Anastasiades invited Akinci to dinner Chateau Status restaurant in the buffer zone where they continued to try and thrash out a compromise but with no success.

Last week, President Akinci had told ‘Kibris Postasi’ that a Cyprus settlement should include guaranteed majorities of population and land ownership in the constituent states, as well as provide derogation from EU law, in order to avoid legal action over future property arrangements.

Anastasiades had stressed on Sunday that the Greek Cypriot side could not accept a solution based on violation of basic EU freedoms.

The two chief negotiators, Andreas Mavroyiannis and Ozdil Nami, will now try and find common ground and lay out some criteria on the property issue ahead of the second meeting between the two leaders on 30th October.
