The UNSG’s special adviser for Cyprus Espen Barth Eide will be holding separate meetings on Thursday with the leaders of both communities, CNA reports.

Eide will be in Athens on Wednesday, where he will be received by Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras and Foreign Minister Evangelos Venizelos.

In Cyprus, on Thursday afternoon, Eide will hold separate meetings with Greek Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades and Turkish Cypriot President Dervis Eroglu and following on with a meeting on Friday with the communities’ negotiators.

A UN source told CNA that Eide “is looking for a formula to get out of the impasse” and that he will be relaying messages from Athens and Ankara.

Last month, Anastasiades pulled out of UN-backed negotiations for a solution to the Cyprus problem, after Turkish seismic exploration vessel ‘Barbaros’ entered the South’s exclusive economic zone a few days after Turkey issued a maritime order (NAVTEX) for the area.
