Cyprus said on Wednesday it reached an agreement in principle with the European Union presidency on a mandate for negotiating with Turkey that should smooth the way for membership talks to open on Oct. 3.

"From our side there are no longer any obstructions," said a Cypriot diplomat, who requested anonymity, reports the AP.
