Repeated rounds of UN-led peace talks have so far failed

Newsroom / CNA

A meeting between the President of Cyprus Nicos Anastasiades and the Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci will take place on October 26.

According to UNFICYP Spokesperson Aleem Siddique “Deputy Special Adviser to the Secretary-General on Cyprus, Ms. Elizabeth Spehar, will host a meeting of the Greek Cypriot leader, Mr. Nicos Anastasiades, and the Turkish Cypriot leader, Mr. Mustafa Akıncı, at the Chief of Mission Residence in the United Nations Protected Area on 26 October at 10:00.”

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.

It is reported that at the meeting the opening of crossing points at Dherynia and Lefka will be discussed as President Anastasiades is eager to restart peace talks. Akinci is visiting Turkey on October 29.
