ANKARA, Turkey - Turkish and Greek Cypriot leaders met in Ankara Friday to resume talks aimed at reunifying the divided island of Cyprus, a report said.
The meeting between President Mehmet Ali Talat of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus and Demetris Christofias, the Greek Cypriot leader, took place in the home of U.N. representative Michael Moeller.
Both sides agreed on an "open agenda," the New Anatolian said.
But the Greek Cypriots were expected to demand that new talks be based on the proposed July 8, 2006, agreement designed to smooth the transition toward a resolution of the Cypress problem. That agreement was never accepted, however, and both sides remained far apart on the unity issue until now.
