Negotiators for the islands Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot communities are expected to resume with online meetings next week in ongoing efforts to kick-start talks.

According to CNA, the online meetings will take place between the negotiator of the Greek Cypriot side, Menelaos Menelaou, and Ergim Olgun, the special representative of the Turkish Cypriot leader Ersin Tatar.

A source told CNA that the discussion is expected to focus on issues dealt with by the bi-communal technical committees, which, he noted, remain active, depending on the extent to which each one has the potential for activity.

The same source pointed out that there are expected to be one or two such online meetings or possibly more before President Nicos Anastasiades and his delegation accompany him to New York in the second half of September for the UN General Assembly and the other contacts he will have there, including his usual meeting with the UN Secretary-General.

The online meetings are held under the auspices of the United Nations, and with the participation of the Special Representative of the UNSG in Cyprus, Colin Stewart. The last meeting was held in the penultimate week of July.
