The Special Envoy of the Secretary-General for Cyprus, Jane Holl Lute, will host an informal reception for the leaders of the two communities at six in the UN-protected area, the UN in Cyprus announced.

The meeting of the President of the Republic, Nicos Anastasiades, with the UN Special Envoy, Jane Holl Lute ended five minutes before 13:00, while she also had a meeting with Mustafa Akinci in the morning.

Reportedly, the terms of reference have reached half a page. Obviously, the fact that a meeting is expected to take place today suggests that the two sides have reached a point that would justify reaching an agreement. However, this morning, speaking to Cypriot media, Foreign Minister Nikos Christodoulides stressed that at the beginning of the week the two sides were close, but details were added along the way – without giving further information – which pushed the two sides further apart./ibna
