Greek and Turkish Cypriot leaders are ready to resume peace talks after a seven-month hiatus, UN envoy Espen Barth Eide said Tuesday, but no date has yet been agreed.
The two sides have agreed to start UN-brokered talks “within weeks not months, from today,” the Norwegian diplomat said.
While no specific date was agreed, it will not come until after presidential elections in the breakaway Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, which begin on April 19 and could go to a second round the following Sunday.
