"We will be announcing the meeting shortly. The date of the meeting has been set for March 21st," Jose Diaz, a spokesman for the U.N. peacekeeping mission in Cyprus, told Reuters.

Christofias was elected last month, pledging to end the stalemate in talks between the Greek and Turkish communities on the divided island, which remains a hurdle to Turkey's European Union aspirations.
