President Nicos Anastasiades and Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci on Saturday will take a walk together in the old town of Nicosia, as part of renewed efforts to end the decades-old division of the island.
The stroll, which includes both sides of the divide, is scheduled for 11am, the government spokesman said.
Akinci’s office said he will welcome Anastasiades at the Ledra Street crossing and after a short walk in the north they will have a coffee.
The leaders will then cross south and walk down Ledra Street before stopping for another beverage.
The two men will spend around 45 minutes on each side.
The social meeting had been agreed last Friday, during the first talks between the two communities following a seven month hiatus.
Anastasiades and Akinci pledged to work tirelessly to resolve the matter as soon as possible.
Talks resumed amid a climate of optimism mainly fuelled by the election of moderate Akinci to the leadership of the Turkish Cypriot community.
It was also announced on Friday that European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker would be visiting the island in July.
Juncker met Anastasiades in Latvia on Thursday and was briefed on the developments.
The two men also discussed the role the EU can play in efforts to solve the Cyprus problem but also in implementing a potential agreement, government spokesman Nicos Christodoulides said.
