The UN Secretary General’s Special Adviser on Cyprus Espen Barth Eide has started shuttle diplomacy between the two leaders, Bayrak TV reports.

Within this framework, Eide visited the Turkish Cypriot leader Dervis Eroglu at the Presidential palace to discuss the current situation.

Speaking to reporters after the one and a half hour meeting, Eide said that he is working towards bringing both sides back to the negotiating table and has therefore launched shuttle diplomacy between the two leaders.

Emphasising the fact that the negotiations had not ended but were only suspended for a while, Eide described the current situation as a medium-scaled crisis.

Stating that he had evaluated the situation with the Turkish Foreign Ministry, he said that the Turkish officials are well aware of the situation and told him that they will continue with their efforts to bring the two sides back to the negotiating table.
