  • [01] PRESIDENT CHRISTOFIAS - EROGLU - DINNER

    Cyprus President Demetris Christofias and the leader of the Turkish Cypriot community Dervis Eroglu are attending a dinner, hosted by the UN, at a local restaurant, in the UN controlled buffer zone.

    This is the first encounter between the two community leaders, since Eroglu replaced Mehmet Ali Talat in April, as the leader of the Turkish Cypriot community.

    Present at the dinner are UN Secretary Generals Special Adviser Alexander Downer and the advisers of the community leaders.

    On arrival at the restaurant both President Christofias and Eroglu were asked what they expected from the dinner.

    This is a social meeting. We shall meet each other, get to know each other. Tomorrow we have our first formal meeting. Tonights dinner is informal, President Christofias said.

    This is a social event, Eroglu replied to press questions.

    Both leaders are accompanied by their spouses.

    The two leaders and Downer and the two spouses were photographed by the media, outside the restaurant.

    Downer had said earlier on that no statements will be issued after the dinner.

    Cyprus has been divided since 1974, when Turkey invaded and occupied its northern third. President Christofias and former Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat began peace talks in September 2008. Talks are set to resume on May 26, between President Christofias and Dervis Eroglu, who succeeded Talat.
