    A new meeting between the leaders of the two communities in Cyprus is taking place tomorrow in the UN Protected Area of Nicosia, in the framework of the direct negotiations, which began last September with a view to reach a solution and reunify the island.

    This will be the 32nd meeting between President of the Republic Demetris Christofias and Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat.

    President Christofias has said that some convergence had been achieved in some aspects of the economy during the discussions in the previous meeting, last Wednesday. As he said they will begin discussing the territorial issue.

    In their last meeting the two leaders exchanged views on the opening of Limnitis checkpoint, which would ease problems the residents in the area face, who after the 1974 Turkish invasion and the subsequent occupation of the island`s northern third are obliged to make an approximately two-hour detour to the south in a bid to reach the capital Nicosia.

    As President Christofias said, in tomorrows meeting, they will further examine this issue, the economy and they will start talks on territory.

    Cyprus has been divided since 1974, when Turkey invaded and occupied its northern third. President Christofias and Talat have been engaged in UN-led direct negotiations since September 2008 to reunite the island.
