The United Nations Secretary – General`s special envoy on Cyprus,  Jane Holl Lute, will host an informal reception for both leaders at 1800 local time (1500 GMT) in the United Nations Protected Area, the UN in Cyprus have announced.

Earlier today Lute had anew meetings with Cyprus President, Nicos Anastasiades, and Turkish Cypriot leader, Mustafa Akinci, in the framework of efforts to formulate the terms of reference that will pave the way for the resumption of Cyprus talks.

Lute arrived to Cyprus on Saturday and has since Sunday had seperate meetings, everyday, with the two leaders.

Cyprus has been divided since 1974, when Turkish troops invaded and occupied 37% of its territory. Repeated rounds of UN-led peace talks have so far failed to yield results. The latest round of negotiations, in the summer of 2017 at the Swiss resort of Crans-Montana, ended inconclusively.
