The UN special envoy to Cyprus, Jane Lute had successive meetings on Sunday with the President of the Republic of Cyprus, Nicos Anastasiades and the Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci.

The aim of the UN envoy is for both sides to reach an agreement on the terms of reference, covering issues of substance and procedure, in order to resume negotiations on the Cyprus issue.

It is recalled that the negotiations were interrupted in July 2017, when a deadlock was reached at the Crans Montana forum.
