    The leaders of the two communities in Cyprus will meet again on October 8, in the context of UN-led negotiations, to discuss issues relating to the powers of the executive.

    On Thursday, Cyprus President Demetris Christofias and Turkish Cypriot Mehmet Ali Talat, who began a dialogue earlier this month, had their second substantive meeting, during which they continued discussions on the chapter ``Governance - Power-sharing.``

    Speaking to the press after his arrival at the Presidential Palace, President Christofias said that the discussion on ``Governance - Power-sharing`` has not been completed yet because there are ``some pending issues.``

    ``We are moving forward but there are some pending issues,`` he added, noting that the next meeting is scheduled for October 8.

    Asked if discussions will focus on another aspect of the Cyprus question or if they will continue on the same chapter, the President said that at the next meeting ``we will begin with executive power,`` clarifying that executive power is part of the chapter ``Governance and power-sharing.``

    Asked about the climate at Thursday`s meeting, the President pointed out that ``the meetings always take place in a friendly spirit, regardless of whether we agree or not.``

    Talks between Christofias and Talat aim at reuniting Cyprus, divided since 1974 when Turkey invaded and occupied its northern third.
