Cyprus negotiators to meet three times this week


The Greek Cypriot and the Turkish Cypriot negotiators, Andreas Mavroyiannis and Ozdil Nami, hold a meeting today in the framework of the UN led talks for a solution of the Cyprus problem.

CNA has learnt that two more meetings will take place this week, one on Wednesday and one on Thursday with an open agenda.

Mavroyiannis and Nami prepare the meetings of the leaders of the two communities, Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades and Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci, which will resume late this month after the summer break.

The two negotiators are meeting under the auspices of Special Representative and Head of the United Nations Peacekeeping Force in Cyprus (UNFICYP) Elizabeth Spehar, who also performs the function of Deputy to the Secretary-General’s Special Adviser on Cyprus.

The Republic of Cyprus has been divided since 1974, when Turkey invaded and occupied 37% of its territory, situated in the northern areas.

UN- led talks under the aegis of the UN are currently underway with the aim to reunite the island under a federal roof.
