"From now on, we--the leaders--will meet once a week, and our special representatives will meet twice a week," Eroglu told reporters after meeting Christofias at the buffer zone.

Wednesday's meeting was the first one between Eroglu and Christofias after the two had a trilateral meeting with United Nations (UN) Secretary General Ban Ki-moon in Geneva, Switzerland on January 26.

Eroglu and Christofias discussed the issues taken up in Geneva and some other issues concerning the two parties.

The leaders will meet next Thursday, whereas their envoys will gather together again on Friday.
