Greek-Cypriot and Turkish-Cypriot Communities' Leaders Meet in Nicosia

UN spokesman Martin Nesirky has stated that the leaders of the Greek-Cypriot and Turkish-Cypriot communities on Friday met in Nicosia, focusing on how to bring peace to the divided island.
The two leaders met for six hours in Nicosia for UN-mediated peace related talks. They have decided to meet again on Tuesday, October 11.
Cyprus has been divided since 1974, when Turkish forces invaded the island in response to a Greek-led coup aiming to make it part of Greece.
The last attempt at a negotiated solution to the Cypriot problem in 2004 collapsed when Turkish-Cypriots voted in favor of a UN settlement plan when Greek-Cypriots rejected it.
As a result, the Southern part ruled by Greek-Cypriots joined the European Union that year, while the North is ruled by Turkish-Cypriots.
