Noting further that, in paragraphs 67 and 68 of his report, the Secretary-General has expressed the view, in connection with the talks in Vienna between representatives of the two communities held pursuant to resolution 367(1975) of 12 March 1975, that the negotiating process should be maintained and, if possible, accelerated and that its success would require from all parties determination, understanding and a willingness to make reciprocal gestures,
Noting also the statement by the Secretary-General contained in paragraph 69 of his report that the parties concerned had signified their concurrence in his recommendations that the Security Council extend the stationing of the Force in Cyprus for a further period of six months,
