The Cyprus negotiations are expected to resume after the Turkish Cypriot presidential elections on 19th April.

The UN Secretary-General’s Special Advisor on Cyprus, Espen Barth Eide made the announcement having met with both Turkish Cypriot and Greek Cypriot Presidents today.

He said they both agreed the “circumstances were now right” for the resumption of negotiations.

“I see no obstacle to a very early resumption of talks once the election process in the north of Cyprus is completed,” Eide said.

Talks were halted in October 2014 after President Anastasiades abandoned the negotiations when Turkey issued a NAVTEX stating that it would be sending its own seismic survey vessel to look for hydrocarbons in South Cyprus’ EEZ.

The NAVTEX expired on 6th April and energy companies licensed to explore in the South’s EEZ have halted drilling in some fields, having found no exploitable amounts of gas.
