Eide returns to Cyprus in a bid to boost the Cyprus talks

UN Special Advisor on Cyprus Espen Barth Eide is back on the island this week. He will be trying to kick start the stalled Cyprus negotiations which came to a deadlock in Mont Pèlerin, last week.

The talks came to a halt after both sides failed to agree on territory and returning refugee numbers

Although both leaders blamed each other for the breakdown of the talks, they also said that they were willing to continue the negotiations.

Eide will meet with President Nicos Anastasiades this morning and later today, is expected to meet with President Mustafa Akinci.

Eide is also expected to meet with Greek Cypriot political party leaders. He may also hold a meeting with North Cyprus party leaders.

Next week, US Deputy Assistant Secretary for European and Eurasian Affairs Joel Cohen is scheduled to arrive in Cyprus.

Meanwhile no further meetings have been scheduled between the two Cypriot negotiators Andreas Mavroyiannis and Ozdil Nami.
