    The leaders of the two communities in Cyprus, President Demetris Christofias and Turkish Cypriot leader Dervis Eroglu, begin on Wednesday intensive meetings, during which they will discuss the property issue in the framework of the UN-led direct talks for a Cyprus settlement.

    According to Alexander Downer, UN SGs Special Advisor in Cyprus, the all-day meetings will be held on the 8 and 10 September.

    President Christofias said on Friday after his last meeting with Eroglu that he hopes for ``serious discussions`` on the property chapter during the two-day talks.

    The President had also said that the two sides outlined their positions orally and no documents were submitted. He further said that the positions of the two sides on property will be submitted ``in due time.``

    Downer had said the UN look forward to the start of the intensive talks.

    Peace talks began in September 2008 between President Christofias and former Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat. Talks continue now with Eroglu, who succeeded Talat in April this year.
