Cyprus leaders increase number of peace talks

Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus President Mehmet Ali Talat and Greek Cypriot leader Demetris Christofias agreed Thursday to accelerate Cyprus peace talks launched to reunify the island.

Cypriot leaders, who met at the buffer zone in Lefkosa for the 42nd time under Cyprus peace talks, also agreed to have two meetings in a week instead of one.

At today's meeting, Talat and Christofias discussed their proposals on "execution" under the topic of "administration and power sharing", said a UN official in the island.

UN Secretary-General's Special Envoy to Cyprus Taye Brook Zerihoun said that the two leaders would have their next meeting on October 5.

The Cyprus talks began in September 2008 in an effort to find a solution to the Cyprus issue. The first round of the talks was completed on August 6, 2009. And the second round started on September 10.
