UN SG’s Special Adviser on Cyprus Espen Barth Eide had a meeting, on Tuesday with Cypriot Foreign Minister Ioannis Kasoulides about the future of the UN-facilitated peace talks.

An excellent conversation w/ FM @IKasoulides on the the situation after #CransMontana and the future of #CyprusTalks, Eide wrote in his account on twitter.

Cyprus has been divided since 1974 when Turkey invaded and occupied its northern third. The latest round of the UN-backed Cyprus talks in Crans-Montana, Switzerland, ended inconclusively. The peace talks under the auspices of the UN aim at reuniting the island under a federal roof.
