Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, or TRNC, will collaborate with United Nations to conduct a population census, which was one of the topics in Cyprus reunification talks.
A senior official from UN Population Fund paid a visit to TRNC President Dervis Eroglu's Special Envoy Kudret Ozersay on Wednesday.
The meeting discussed methods of cooperation between TRNC and UN, and also the scope of technical support to be given to Turkish Cypriot government, Turkish Agency Cyprus (TAK) reported.
An in-depth discussion on technical details of cooperation will also take place between UN officials and officials of TRNC State Planning Organization on Thursday, TAK said.
The issue of a population census in TRNC was one of the topics on negotiation table during Cyprus reunification talks between Turkish and Greek Cypriot leaders.
Turkish Cypriot President Dervis Eroglu had earlier said the country was planning a census in order to take measures aimed at overcoming economic and social problems in the country, and also to help come to an agreement on several topics in negotiations.
Turkish Cypriot government had said the census would be conducted in cooperation with UN and in line with international standards.
