The maps to be presented by the two sides during the Cyprus negotiations taking place in Geneva will be kept in the UN’s secure box.

According to information given by the Anatolian Agency’s diplomatic sources, the maps to be presented by President Mustafa Akinci and the leader of the Greek Cypriot administration Nicos Anastasiades will only be seen by five people.

Today’s negotiations process will take place at the UN’s Geneva office and the territory issue which is a critical part of the talks, will be discussed.

Following discussions the negotiating teams will leave the room.

Only the two leaders, two map experts and the UN Secretary General’s Special Advisor for Cyprus Espen Barth Eide will remain in the room.

Under Eide’s supervision President Mustafa Akinci and the Greek Cypriot leader Nicos Anastasiades will simultaneously reveal their maps.

After the two side’s map experts study the maps, they will be handed over to the UN envoy.

Once Eide receives the maps he will place them in the UN’s secure box.
