UN confirms no new Cyprus talks after Greek cancellation

UN Peacekeeping Force in Cyprus (UNFICYP) indirectly confirmed that the first meeting of the second round of talks to find a solution to Cyprus question, which was scheduled to take place on Thursday, would not be held.

Earlier, it was stated that President Mehmet Ali Talat of Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC) and Greek Cypriot leader Demetris Christofias would begin the second round of talks in buffer zone in Cyprus tomorrow.

UNFICYP told Turkish Cypriot news agency that a statement would be released when a date was set for the meeting.

Earlier today, Greek Cypriot administration commissioner George Iacovou said that Christofias would not attend tomorrow's meeting and showed "the attitude towards Greek Cypriot worshippers at Yesilirmak passageway" as the reason.

Meanwhile, Talat's representative Ozdil Nami told A.A that they did not receive a formal information about the issue.

The second round of talks was scheduled to take place on Thursday, and parties would start the new round by discussing the "executive" issue under the main title of "administration and power sharing".
