Greek and Turkish Cypriot leaders meet on Cyprus issue

Greek and Turkish Cypriot leaders Nicos Anastasiades and Dervis Eroglu are scheduled to meet on Monday March 31 to continue peace talks for the unification of the island, divided since the 1974 Turkish invasion.

According to information, Alexander Downer, former UN envoy on Cyprus, who was replaced in his position by Lisa Battenheim, is expected to visit the island at the end of March, to say goodbye to the leaders of the island’s two communities and his associates here.

Downer’s proposed trip is likely to coincide with the meeting, the second in a row, between the two leaders, Nicos Anastasiades and Dervis Eroglu. The UN envoy may, if he is still on the island, attend the meeting.

The same sources say that no agenda has yet been drafted for the March meeting.
