    The leaders of the two communities in Cyprus, President of the Republic Demetris Christofias and Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat, held Wednesday their 20th in the framework of UN-led direct negotiations.

    UN Secretary-General`s Special Representative to Cyprus Taye-Brook Zerihoun said after the meeting, which lasted over three hours, that the two leaders had at first a tete a tete meeting for one hour and 45 minutes.

    After that meeting, they continued their discussions on the criteria for the property issue and had an extensive discussion, according to Zerihoun.

    He added that the two leaders have decided to continue these discussions next Thursday 5th of March and after that they will move on to discuss EU matters.

    Asked why the leaders were still discussing the criteria and not the substance of the property issue, Zerihoun said the leaders started exchanging views on the principles that will guide the discussions and for the past two meetings they have been discussing the criteria to define the parameters under which this discussion will continue.

    After that they will make a decision whether those discussions could continue in other fora, he said, not ruling out the possibility that one option could be a discussion between the aides of the leaders of the two communities, Presidential Commissioner George Iacovou and Turkish Cypriot leaders advisor Ozdil Nami.

    President Christofias and Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat are meeting in the framework of the UN-led direct negotiations, which began last September with a view to reaching a solution of the Cyprus problem. The talks aim at reunifying the island, divided since the Turkish invasion of 1974.
