  • [01] LEADERS TO MEET ON TUESDAY

    Cyprus President Demetris Christofias and Turkish Cypriot leader Dervis Eroglu will meet on Tuesday at 4.00 pm, in the framework of the UN led direct negotiation process aimed at finding a solution to the Cyprus problem. The meeting will take place at the UN protected area of the Nicosia airport.

    The last meeting on June 3, 2010, was postponed at Christofias initiative, after statements by Eroglu who questioned the basis of the talks.

    In statements, Christofias had said that he asked for the postponement of the meeting with a view to avoid a crisis and a deadlock at the talks and asked the issue to be discussed by the two leaders advisers George Iacovou and Kudret Ozersay.

    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 now continue with the President and Eroglu.

    I am just taking up my new responsibilities as Special Representative of the Secretary General and also as Deputy to Mr. Downer. I am looking forward to my stay in Cyprus, she concluded.
