Cyprus: New Round Of Peace Talks Begins

Leaders from ethnically divided Cyprus are set to begin Jan. 9 a week of peace talks aimed at reaching a deal for the reunification of the island, Reuters reported. Turkish Cypriot President Mustafa Akinci and Republic of Cyprus President Nicos Anastasiades, are meeting in Geneva for three days of talks. On Jan. 12, representatives from other countries including the United Kingdom, Turkey and Greece – the three countries that guarantee security on the island – will join the discussions. Cyprus has been divided since Turkey invaded the north of the island in 1974. While the negotiations open the door for a rapprochement, several points of friction remain.
