Turkish Cypriot party, during the tripartite summit in Geneva on Thursday, offered to negotiate "land" topic before discussing "map" issue.
UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, President Dervis Eroglu of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC) and Greek Cypriot leader Demetris Christofias convened in a tripartite summit in Geneva to set up a new road map in Cyprus talks which began in September, 2008.
According to Turkish Cypriot Bayrak Radio & Television (BRT), Turkish Cypriot party offered to negotiate "land" topic --which has not been taken up during the talks so far-- because the recent UN report guaranteed that talks on "map" issue would be held on the recent phase of Cyprus negotiations.
Foreign diplomatic sources said that this initiative of Turkish Cypriot party aimed to eliminate the pretense of Greek Cypriot party saying that no progress had been recorded as "land" topic could not be taken up during Cyprus talks.
Talks, which aim to find a solution to Cyprus problem, began in September of 2008. So far, Ban, Eroglu and Christofias had held tripartite meetings in New York on November 18, 2010 and in Geneva on January 26, 2011.
