Chief negotiator for the Turkish Cypriots on the Cyprus settlement, Kudret Ozersay (R) met with his Greek Cypriot counterpart Andreas Mavroyiannis (L) on Monday to begin substantial talks on some of the key issues in the Cyprus negotiations.

According to the Spokesperson of the Good Offices Mission in Cyprus, Michel Bonnardeaux, the Greek Cypriot negotiator Andreas Mavroyiannis and Turkish Cypriot negotiator Kudret Ozersay met on Monday in the United Nations Protected Area of Nicosia at the Good Offices Mission.

“They completed their exchange of views on process and started substantive discussions on issues connected to different chapters”, he added.

Bonnardeaux concluded by saying that they will continue these discussions at their next meeting on Tuesday, 4th March.

A number of working groups has been also set up on governance and power sharing, EU matters, security and guarantees, territory, property, economic matters and citizenship but these have not been activated, says the Cyprus News Agency.

On Thursday Ozersay will travel to Athens and Mavroyiannis to Ankara for high-level discussions on the negotiations.

This move is unprecedented in the history of the Cyprus negotiations.
