United Nations Under-Secretary-General for Political and Peacebuilding Affairs Rosemary DiCarlo said she is eager to discuss with the Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot leaders the way forward on the Cyprus issue.

DiCarlo posted on her twitter account that she is travelling to Cyprus on her first visit to the island and will also meet youth and women’s groups and visit the Committee on Missing Persons (CMP).

Her meeting with Cyprus President Nikos Christodoulides is set for March 15 in the morning. Later she is expected to meet Turkish Cypriot leader Ersin Tatar.

During her stay DiCarlo will also meet with the members of the Committee on Missing Persons and will visit Famagusta, by helicopter, and the buffer zone in Nicosia

Early in the afternoon she will inaugurate a photo exhibition at the Home of Cooperation in the buffer zone, for the participation of women in the negotiations for the Cyprus problem.

During her stay she will also meet with the members of the Committee on Missing Persons (CMP) and will visit Famagusta, by helicopter, and the buffer zone in Nicosia.

She is expected to depart from Cyprus on March 16.

Cyprus has been divided since the 1974 Turkish invasion. Numerous rounds of talks under the UN aegis failed so far to yield results.

Since the Turkish invasion, the fate of hundreds of people remains unknown. A Committee on Missing Persons has been established, upon agreement between the leaders of the two communities, with the scope of exhuming, identifying and returning to their relatives the remains of 492 Turkish Cypriots and 1,510 Greek Cypriots, who went missing during the inter-communal fighting of 1963-1964 and in 1974.
