Meanwhile in Ankara Greek-Cypriot official Andreas Mavroyiannis met with the Turkish Foreign Ministry in a parallel initiative.

In a related development on Thursday, the junior partner in Cypruss coalition quit the government following a dispute with President Nicos Anastasiades over the latters handling of the new peace drive.
