Cypriot leaders in talks aimed at reunification agreement

Cypriot political leaders are meeting in Geneva for United Nations-led talks amid signs of a possible agreement on the issue which has been going on for a number of years.

The United Nations representative said the Greek-Cypriot leader Nicos Anastasiades and the Turkish-Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci are determined to reach agreement following the failure of every attempt in the past to unite this island.

The talks are aimed at bringing about some form of unification under a federal system, with power being divided between the two communities. Cyprus has been divided ever since Turkish troops invaded the island 43 years ago after a coup by Greek-Cypriots to become part of Greece.
