Minister of Justice and Public Order, Ionas Nicolaou, said on Sunday that the ultimate goal of the President of Cyprus Nicos Anastasiades is a well prepared and quick resumption of the Cyprus talks.

Nicolaou expressed hope that the contacts of the UNSG`s envoy Jane Holl Lute, as well as the forthcoming informal meeting between the leaders of the two communities in Cyprus, will help formulate the terms of reference for the resumption of the Cyprus negotiations.

The Minister said that "we expect written positions, in order to see which of the two sides respects the previous convergences achieved and which one withdraws, thus delaying the resumption of the talks.
