The Turkish Cypriot side has accepted the Secretary General's draft framework agreement and taken the position that the Greek Cypriot side should also do so. The Greek Cypriot side has not accepted the document and, instead, has taken the position that priority should be given to discussion of withdrawal of Turkish troops and settlers, international guarantees, and the ``three freedoms.''
