Cypriot leaders meet in reunification talks

Turkish and Greek Cypriot leaders met Tuesday in an intensified round of their talks to reunify the divided Mediterranean island.

Turkish Cypriot President Dervis Eroglu and Greek Cypriot leader Demetris Christofias discussed governance and power-sharing as well as oil and natural gas exploration in the eastern Mediterranean, Eroglu told reporters after the five-and-a-half-hour meeting at island's UN-controlled buffer zone.

Eroglu said they were set to meet again on Friday, adding that the two leaders had agreed to hold an out-of-schedule meeting on September 14.

Cypriot leaders have been negotiating to reunify the island since 2008.

Eroglu and Christofias earlier agreed this year to hold 19 intensified talks between July 25 and October 21 and discuss all core issues.
