NICOSIA - The two appointed negotiators on the UN-brokered Cyprus peace talks on Tuesday met for the last time before they enter the phase of substantive negotiations on May 6.
A UN statement released after the meeting in Nicosia also said: “The Greek Cypriot negotiator Andreas Mavroyiannis and the Turkish Cypriot negotiator Kudret Özersay met today in the United Nations Protected Area of Nicosia at the Good Offices Mission and concluded the screening phase”.
It added: “They agreed to meet on May 6, 2014 when they will enter the phase of substantive negotiations”.
Stalled peace talks resumed on February 11 after the island’s community leaders agreed on a joint communiqué highlighting key principles of a federated Cyprus.
But the process appears to be quite bumpy as the international community – especially the US – seems keen to maintain the momentum.
