Australia welcomes renewed new efforts for Cyprus talks
Γράφει ο/η Θεόφιλος Δουμάνης   
Australian Foreign Minister Stephen Smith welcomed the announcement for the renewed negotiations for the Cyprus issue between Cypriot President, Dimitris Christofias and Turkish Cypriot leader, Mehmet Ali Talat scheduled to take place in September.

Foreign Minister Stephen Smith said the government welcomed efforts on both sides aimed at securing a lasting settlement to the dispute, adding that the situation in Cyprus had endured for far too long.

"Australia urges both leaders to look to the future, to be flexible in their negotiations and to be prepared to compromise," he said.

"The challenges ahead will be difficult but, with sufficient political will, not insurmountable.

"This opportunity to bring a lasting settlement to Cyprus should not be missed."

United Nations special envoy Alexander Downer, who will coordinate the talks, has voiced optimism in recent days about the prospects for brokering a deal to reunify Cyprus.

The former Australian foreign minister, who was appointed to the UN post on July 12, said on Wednesday from Cyprus that it would be a difficult process but that the chances of reaching an agreement looked "quite promising".

The talks will begin on September 3.
