Turkish, Greek Cypriot leaders to continue talks on Jan 12

Turkish and Greek Cypriot leaders will have their first meeting of the new year on January 12 ahead of their three-way meeting with UN Secreratry-General planned for January 26 in Geneva, diplomats said on Thursday.

Turkish Cypriot President Dervis Eroglu and Greek Cypriot leader Demetris Christofias had 18 meetings so far since May 26 under Cyprus reunification talks launched in September 28.

Their last meeting took place on December 15 and planned two next meetings were cancelled as Eroglu had a heart surgery in Turkish capital Ankara.

In November, leaders had a meeting with UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, who called on parties to add momentum to talks. Ban said they decided to come together again in Geneva at the end of January 2011, and to intensify the talks to prepare a "practical plan" to eliminate disagreements.
