The United Nation special representative for Cyprus, Mr. Downer showed hope that a deal on the separated island could be brokered by the end of this year

Downer said that both the leaders want the solution by the end of the year, but both the parties have to be cooperative and show patience during negotiations.   "It would be good to get the bulk of the work done by the end of the year," Downer told Reuters in an interview. "Just in terms of the negotiations they can do it, whether they will I don\'t know. But they can do it."

A new turn in Cyprus Issue when TRNC President and Cyprus\' Christofias wanted Turkey presence in the talks.  Cyprus problem has taken a new turn, when the topic of discussion was whether Turkey should be a party in ongoing UN-led negotiations or not.


TRNC President, Dervis Eroglu and Greek Cypriot leader Dimitris Christofias were both in New York to attend the UN General Assembly. United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon had bilateral meetings with Christofias on Tuesday and with Eroglu on Saturday.  And the main focus of both the meetings was to find the solution of he Cyprus Problem. 

Christofias, addressing the UN General Assembly on Friday, said he wanted to hold direct talks with Turkey on the prospect of peace talks on the racially divided island, where a decades-old clash threatens Ankara\'s proposal to join the European Union.

"From this podium, I repeat my call to the Turkish leadership to meet me, parallel to the negotiating process, so that I can share with them my vision for a solution to the Cyprus problem which would serve the interests of the Cypriots, of Turkey, of Greece, as well as of peace and security in the region," said Christofias.
