Turkish Cypriot leader Ersin Tatar has rejected a proposal by President Nikos Christodoulides to have a joint meeting with a top UN official when he visits Cyprus later this month.

UN Assistant Secretary-General Miroslav Jenča will visit on August 27-29 but a source has told CNA that the two leaders will not meet jointly with him.

Christodoulides’ proposal was conveyed to Jenča when he contacted Nicosia at the beginning of this week to announce his forthcoming visit to Cyprus. The UN official notified Nicosia on Thursday that the Turkish Cypriot leader rejected the proposal.

Jenča will be having separate meetings with President Christodoulides and Tatar, during his visit to the island.
