    President of the Republic Demetris Christofias and Turkish Cypriot leader Dervis Eroglu are meeting today in the framework of the ongoing UN-led negotiations, with an aim to find a comprehensive solution to the Cyprus problem.

    Their last meeting between the two leaders was held on January 12. Todays meeting is the last one before the Geneva meeting which has been scheduled for January 26. Since November 18, 2010 and their meeting with UN Secretary General in New York, the leaders of the two communities in Cyprus have met three times. The meetings scheduled for December 21 and 28, 2010 did not take place, due to Eroglu`s heart surgery on December 19.

    The aides of the leaders, George Iacovou and Kudret Ozersay, have been meeting on a weekly basis.

    President Christofias and Eroglu met with UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon on November 18 in New York and agreed to meet again in the presence of the UN chief at the end of January in Geneva.

    Special Adviser on Cyprus, Alexander Downer has said after the last meeting on January 12, that UN Secretary General Ban Ki moon will ask the leaders of the two communities to maintain the momentum at the UN led Cyprus talks, and to chart a path forward.

    Cyprus has been divided since 1974, when Turkey invaded and occupied its northern third. Talks between President Christofias and Eroglu aim to reunify the island under a federal roof.
