UN: Cyprus Rivals to Meet Tuesday for Peace Talks

ƒ…≈»Õ≈” ¡≈—œƒ—œÃ…œ À≈’ Ÿ”…¡” -œƒœ…–œ—… œCyprus President Nicos Anastasiades and Turkish Cypriot leader Dervis Eroglu meet on Tuesday morning, an UNFICYP press release issued here on Saturday says.
According to the UNFICYP press release the two leaders will meet in the United Nations Protected Area (UNPA) of Nicosia at the Good Offices Mission.
Earlier, both sides said they had accepted a new road map for the negotiations, outlined in a joint statement that would be read at the resumption of talks. It is their first formal meeting since negotiations stalled in mid-2012.
On Friday, Greece gave its backing to renewed talks, with Prime Minister Antonis Samaras calling them “one of the leading priorities of Greek foreign policy.”
Cyprus was divided in 1974 when Turkey invaded and occupied its northern third.
