UN pleased with process on Cyprus talks, envoy says

United Nations Secretary-General's Special Advisor on Cyprus Alexander Downer said Friday the UN was pleased with the negotiations process in Cyprus.

Speaking to reporters after Friday's meeting between Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC) President Dervis Eroglu and Greek Cypriot administration's leader Demetris Christofias at UN SG's Special Representative in Cyprus Lisa Buttenheim's residence, Downer said that today's meeting provided an excellent opportunity for the leaders to exchange views on the issue of property.

The representatives of the two leaders will meet next Thursday or Friday to discuss the issue of property and to provide information to the leaders at the beginning of October, Downer said.

Asked whether he was pleased with the stage in Cyprus negotiations, Downer said that the UN was pleased with the process in Cyprus.

Today's meeting in Cyprus took place in a friendly atmosphere. Due to the leaders' visit to New York, there will not be any other meeting in Cyprus in the remaining part of September, Downer also said.

Eroglu and Christofias started assessing mutual proposals on property topic during their latest meeting on September 8.

Eroglu's predecessor Talat and Greek Cypriot leader Christofias got together 71 times under the extensive settlement talks.
Dervis Eroglu was elected the new president of TRNC on April 18.
