He was talking to journalists after a two-hour-long meeting with President Nicos Anastasiades.

“The basic principle behind the talks remains very strong; that it is a leader-led process, it is led by two leaders who want to solve this, it is led by two leaders who also very much want to solve it in a genuine and sustainable way,” Eide said.

“And it is much more important to find a good solution than to rush to a solution, so that we are able to make sure that what we consult will last,” he added.

Eide who is meeting TC president Mustafa Akinci on Tuesday afternoon, also said that he repeatedly noted there is no time-line despite reports to the contrary.

Anastasiades made clear over the weekend that a March deadline for a referendum on a UN-brokered Cyprus reunification proposal is not feasible despite original plans.

Anastasiaded has also made clear that an overall solution to the 41-year-old problem should be fully compatible with basic EU law – something the Turkish side insists to ignore asking for permanent derogations.

Eide said he has been very clear all the time that the UN want to find a solution that is fully compatible with the basic EU values and principles and also with international human rights.

And that you should not compromise the individual rights to the collective.

“At the same time there are compromises that have to be made so that bizonality and bicommunality is possible but they should never be to the detriment of the rights of individuals be they TC or GC,” he said.
