    The leaders of the two communities in Cyprus, President Demetris Christofias and Turkish Cypriot leader Dervis Eroglu will hold today a new meeting in the framework of the UN-led Cyprus talks, aiming at reaching a solution of the Cyprus problem.

    Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General in Cyprus Lisa Buttenheim said on Friday after the meeting between President Demetris Christofias and Turkish Cypriot leader Dervis Eroglu that Cyprus leaders had an extensive discussion.

    Buttenheim said that the leaders met for six hours and had a broad discussion, adding that it was agreed that their representatives will follow-up on Monday in the afternoon.

    Asked if the ``give and take`` process started today, Buttenheim said ``we have entered this new phase now so they had a discussion on a number of issues. I dont want to characterize it other than to say that they did discuss extensively different issues.``

    President Demetris Christofias said after the meeting that during he discussed with Eroglu issues concerning the EU, the Police and internal security and the economy, adding that no give and take has taken place so far.

    These are the issues on which we are closer and the experts from the two sides have undertaken the responsibility, if possible, to come to conclude on them before our next meeting on Tuesday, he noted.

    He added that there are of course other issues which are very serious and on which they continue to have different opinions.

    Cyprus was divided in 1974 when Turkey invaded the island occupying 37% of its territory. UN led talks have been ongoing since 2008 between the leaders of the two communities with a view to reunite the island under a federal roof.
