Greek, Turkish Cypriot leaders to meet May 2, says government spokesman

NICOSIA – Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades will meet the newly elected leader of the divided island’s breakaway Turkish north, Mustafa Akinci, on May 2 in an attempt to push stalled peace talks forward, a Cypriot government spokesman said on Tuesday.

Nikos Christodoulides also said the Greek Cypriot community was poised to announce “unilateral confidence building measures” toward Turkish Cypriots.
