UN chairs organizational meeting of 'technical committees' for Cyprus

The Greek Cypriots and the Turkish Cypriots today held an organizational meeting, chaired by the United Nations, for two committees that the leaders had agreed to create on 4 October in the presence of Secretary General Kofi Annan.

The meeting in Cyprus charted the future work of the so-called technical committees, which will undertake their discussions in parallel with the political negotiations and without prejudice to their outcome, a UN spokesperson said in New York.

The members of the committees plan to meet again on 7 January 2003, according to the spokesperson.
