Cyprus President, Nikos Christodoulides, is to hold a meeting with the UN Secretary-General's envoy for Cyprus, Maria Angela Holguin Cuellar, on the sidelines of the European Council in Brussels later this week, Government Spokesman, Konstantinos Letymbiotis, told CNA on Tuesday.

Asked by CNA, Letymbiotis said that there was "planning" for a meeting between Holguin and President Christodoulides, on the sidelines of the European Council in Brussels. He noted that the actual date had not been set yet and that the meeting was expected to take place either on Thursday or Friday, which are the days the European Council is to be held.

Holguin, sources told CNA, is expected to hold a meeting with the leader of the Turkish Cypriot community, Ersin Tatar, next week in London.

Cyprus has been divided since 1974 when Turkey invaded and occupied its northern third. Repeated rounds of UN-led peace talks have so far failed to yield results. The latest round of negotiations, in July 2017 at the Swiss resort of Crans-Montana ended inconclusively. Last January, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres appointed Holguin as his personal envoy for Cyprus, to assume a Good Offices role on his behalf and search for common ground on the way forward in the Cyprus issue.
