    President Demetris Christofias and Turkish Cypriot leader Dervis Eroglu will meet again on Tuesday, August 23, in the framework of direct talks for a Cyprus solution, following a brief summer break.

    According to a UN press release, the meeting will take place in the morning, at the Chief of Missions residence in the United Nations Protected Area of Nicosia.

    Speaking after the last all-day meeting, on August 2, UN Secretary General`s Special Advisor on Cyprus, Alexander Downer said the leaders spent a fairly long amount of time focusing on the issue of governance and power-sharing.

    Leaders did discuss governance and power-sharing, and they will be meeting again on Friday (5 August) in a similar format. And well take up from where weve left off today and focus on governance and power-sharing, he said.

    Downer reiterated that the UN consider that the less is said publicly about what happens in the discussions the more the chance is of having a degree of success in the negotiations.

    These are very difficult negotiations, as we all know. We need to make sure that they are conducted in a way that maximizes the opportunity for reaching agreement. With that in mind we try to keep the contents of the discussion at this stage, during this intensive stage, as confidential as possible; thats a very important component of the process, he said.


    The Electricity Authority of Cyprus (EAC) hopes that modular generators, delivered by Energy International, will be able to start production by the end of August.

    EAC Spokesman Costas Gavrielides told CNA on Monday that the generators that arrived on Sunday were of a capacity of 60MW and will be installed at the Dhekelia power plant, while other generators of a capacity of 35MW were already on their way and would be installed at the Moni power plant.

    ``Our aim is to connect them to the transfer system, to begin production, by the end of this month,`` he said.

    He added that Energy International was awarded the tender to provide generators of a total capacity of 95MW, and that the first ones came from Oman and the others were shipped from the USA and are already in the Mediterranean.
