Cypriot President Demetris Christofias said  that he is not pleased with the progress achieved so far in the ongoing peace talks he is engaged in, with the leader of the Turkish Cypriot community Mehmet Ali Talat.

The President stressed however that he is not disappointed and will continue his efforts to reunite Cyprus as there is no other option to achieve this objective except through dialogue.

Christofias said he remained committed to working for a political settlement of a bizonal bicommunal federation with political equality as defined by the UN.
