'Nothing new' comes out of leaders’ meeting

President Mustafa Akıncı said “nothing new” had come out of his meeting with Greek Cypriot leader Nicos Anastasiadis, but that the meeting was “necessary”.

The two leaders met on Monday evening at the Chief of Mission residence in the United Nations Protected Area, before a dinner with Deputy Special Adviser to the Secretary-General on Cyprus, Ms. Elizabeth Spehar.

Mr Akıncı said the two leaders maintained the same position they had at Crans Montana, and he did not see a significant change in attitude of the Greek Cypriot side. He made the statement at the Presidency at 11.45pm following the meeting.

“We had the chance to exchange how we saw the period ahead, this was necessary,” said Mr Akıncı.

According to a written statement by Ms Spehar, the leaders “had a frank and open exchange of views during a two hour tête-à-tête discussion”.

They then proceeded to a dinner with Ms Spehar.

The leaders also discussed hydrocarbons and the Aplıç and Derinya borders.
