    The leaders of the two communities in Cyprus, Cypriot President Demetris Christofias and Turkish Cypriot leader Dervis Eroglu concentrated on the issue of property during their meeting on Friday, in the framework of the UN-led direct negotiations aiming at a political settlement, UN Secretary General`s Special Adviser on Cyprus Alexander Downer has said.

    Speaking after the meeting, Downer said that the two leaders met for around three hours and that their representatives will continue the discussions on property next Thursday. The leaders will resume their discussions on the 22nd of July, he added.

    The UN official also said that the leaders have outlined a programme of further meetings up until the end of August. They will actually meet on three occasions in August and we welcome that.

    Christofias and Eroglu, according to Downer are meeting on the 22nd of July, the 28th of July, the 4th of August and that will be followed by a meeting on Tuesday 10th of August.

    There will be a very short break and then they will resume their next meeting on the 31st of August, he said and concluded: So, we are glad that the leaders are holding as many meetings as they are having.

    Cyprus has been divided since 1974, when Turkish troops invaded and occupied 37% of its territory. Peace talks began in September 2008 between President Christofias and former Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat, who was replaced by Eroglu in April this year.
