Leaders meet anew with Lute today

Discussions underway on guidelines for the negotiation process

Newsroom / CNA

President Anastasiades is meeting on Tuesday morning anew with Jane Holl Lute, the UN Secretary-General’s envoy, who is in Cyprus to get a sense whether the two sides have the political will to restart peace talks. Government Spokesman Prodromos Prodromou said that the process to determine the terms of reference, deemed to pave the way for the resumption of settlement talks, is underway.


 
The meeting is scheduled for 8am local time (6am GMT) at the Presidential Palace.
 
The Turkish Cypriot side announced that Lute will meet again with Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci, at 10.30am on Tuesday.

Prodromou said that the process has already started and “consultations take place in order to determine jointly the terms of reference.”

He added that discussions will continue tomorrow with Lute, but said that “the process has now only started.” 

In an announcement Akinci's office said that ''it will take some time'' for the terms of reference to be established.
 
CNA learns that during Sunday’s meeting with President Anastasiades, Lute did not convey her discussions with Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu, with whom she met last Thursday in Ankara. The UN envoy is scheduled to leave Cyprus tomorrow afternoon.
